Tensions are running high in the Tudor household. Cardinal Wolsey keeps a watchful eye on political, religious and romantic agendas as he prepares for the opening of Parliament and there are questions to be asked of everyone when a visiting critic is found brutally murdered at Richmond Palace. Royal trumpeter and super sleuth, Anthony Blanke, is drafted in to investigate the grisly crime – a killing that triggers a chain of others in this highly charged thriller.

Skilfully drawn and powerfully evocative, the second novel in the Anthony Blanke series leaves little to the imagination. Intricate murder scenes are played out in all their gruesome glory, and the portrait of London and its people feels as authentic as any you’ll find; the stench of illness and poverty juxtaposed brilliantly with life behind the palace gates. The crime scenes are not for the faint-hearted, but nor do they feel gratuitous. Steven Veerapen draws upon his extensive knowledge of the period to create a narrative that always rings true – a time where the powerful rule and any challenge to authority can have dramatic and bloody consequences!

Corruption and murder in Tudor times may feel like familiar territory, but nothing about Of Judgement Fallen feels anything but fresh. Just keep reminding yourself that it’s a work of fiction and not historical fact … it’s so good, it could almost be believable.
