Winter in Madrid C J Sansom

So I love this persons work with the excellent Shardlake series. If you haven’t heard of it, Shardlake is a hunchback lawyer in Tudor times, specifically, Henry 8. He is a great character who gets into all sorts of strife and then gets out of it. Winter in Madrid is a departure from Tudor times and bangs us into the Spanish civil war. Just goes to show that a great author can move through time and space and give us a ripping yarn. And that is just what this is – a ripping yarn well written. If that is your bag – ( a ripping yarn in the historical fiction genre ) then go for it. You won’t be sorry. Promise.
