Should he be released as his parents want, when his terrifying actions could lead to him being burned as a heretic?' 'When an old friend is horrifically murdered, Shardlake promises his widow, for whom he has long had complicated feelings, to bring the killer to justice. His search leads him to connections not only with the boy in Bedlam but with Cranmer and Catherine Parr and with the dark prophecies of the Book of Revelation.' 'As London's Bishop Bonner prepares a purge of Protestants, Shardlake, together with his assistant Jack Barak and his friend Guy Malton, follows the trail of a series of horrific murders that shake them all to the core, and which are already igniting frenzied talk of witchcraft and demonic possession.
