Pan Macmillan are thrilled to share that we will be publishing the new C. J. Sansom book, Tombland, on 18th October 2018. The seventh novel in C. J. Sansom's bestselling Matthew Shardlake series is available to preorder in hardback, ebook and audiobook now.
The eagerly anticipated new novel from one of Britain's best loved historical fiction authors follows Matthew Shardlake as he investigates a new murder case on behalf of the Lady Elizabeth, which takes him to Norwich where he finds himself caught up in the midst of Kett’s rebellion, the huge and dramatic peasant revolt of 1549.
C. J. Sansom said of his new novel: “It is a delight to have completed Tombland. I have wanted for a long time to write about the surprisingly little-known English peasant rebellions of 1549, in which more rebels were killed than in the 1381 Peasants’ Revolt, and of which Kett’s rebellion in Norfolk was the largest. It has been a long time in the making – partly because of the sheer amount of research needed, partly because of delays through health problems. But here it is at last, with a murder mystery having ramifications both within and outside the rebel camp at the centre of the story.”
