notes

The third and concluding part of Mantel’s trilogy traces the final years of Thomas Cromwell, the boy from nowhere who climbs to the heights of power, offering a defining portrait of predator and prey. Mantel’s exquisite prose, stunning period recreation and rich characters provide a real immersion into the tapestry of life in gritty Tudor England.

Insights

Having disposed of Anne Boleyn, Cromwell is now the right hand man of Henry VIII. He is a man with only his wits to rely on; he has no great family to back him, no private army. What will you do, the Spanish ambassador asks Cromwell, when the king turns on you, as sooner or later he turns on everyone close to him?
