CJ Sansom’s historical crime series set in Tudor times and featuring the inimitable Matthew Shardlake is back. That alone will be exciting enough for a host of readers who’ve waited several years for this moment. Even more exciting, though, is the news that the seventh episode is (brace yourself) set here in Norwich itself – hence the ‘Tombland’ title – around the events of Kett’s Rebellion. The book will be a national best-seller, of course, but here in Norfolk the sales are likely to be stratospheric and it’s a fair bet this will be the top seller in Jarrolds this autumn.
