Read Dissolution by C J Sansom. Already familiar with the story from the BBC radio adaptation, although it’s long enough ago that I listened to it to have forgotten who it was what dunnit.

Set during the time of the dissolution of the monasteries, it’s a conventional but enjoyable and pacy historical murder mystery. Greed, lust, power, class and pond drainage. Somewhat in the vein of Ellis Peters’ Cadfael series but with more bodily fluids. 📚
