Product Details


“Brilliant. . . . Ackroyd has borrowed from one classic and produced another.”–Time Out New York

“Theological and political issues come bracingly alive as the plot turns and twists through a murky world of betrayal and fanaticism. In the words of ‘The Monk’s Tale’ ‘To Thee this storie I recomende.’” —The Christian Science Monitor

The Clerkenwell Tales is the latest example of [Ackroyd’s] virtuoso mastery of his subject matter.”–The Seattle Times

“A gripping thriller which also happens to be wonderfully full of engaging historical detail and conversation-enhancing worlds like ‘hopharlot.” —Literary Review
