The second entry of Mantel's Thomas Cromwell trilogy maintains the superb quality of writing of the first. Mantel delves deeply into her characters, but lets them reveal themselves through everyday interactions and reflections. Her restrained writing is a welcome relief to the usual soap-opera treatment of this era, and the dramatic events that take place are even more explosive against the background of her particular stylistic tapestry.
