If you haven't discovered them yet do read the Matthew Shardlake novels by CJ Sansom. I have just finished the second which was better than the first. Shardlake is an honest lawyer (there are such things) at the time of the English Reformation. He mixes with power brokers. Thomas Cromwell, Archbishop Cranmer, The Duke of Norfolk and Henry VIII himself are among those he contends with. The plots are woven into actual historical events and full of exciting happenings. I promise you won't be disappointed.
