Of course, whilst i was in Eastbourne the last shop i visited just had to be right next door to a Waterstones bookshop .I succumbed ,and having read one book on Thomas Cromwell from a historian who seemed to put all the blame on Thomas rather than the King (Henry VIII),this book is a more up to date revisionist account.

This is certainly a more nuanced view of the man.

Tracy Borman's book on Cromwell is an interesting read.

Hilary Mantel's novels based around Cromwell: 'Wolf Hall' and 'Bring up the Bodies' are also worthwhile and very well historically researched.
