Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall, on Our Man in Rome.

"An eye-opening book, an intricate and fascinating story of an elusive man with an impossible job. A brilliant and impressive feat of original research, and necessary reading for anyone fascinated by the story of Henry’s divorce..."

 
Hilary Mantel goes on: "Catherine Fletcher has allowed the story to tell itself, except that she’s been so clever in the telling of it, cutting through to what matters without over-simplifying."
 
The sequel to Wolf Hall is out in May.
