C. J. Sansom

"Like all lawyers, I was delighted by gratitude. It happened so rarely."

C. J. Sansom biography and information

  • Christopher John "C.J." Sansom was born in Edinburgh and later studied at Birmingham University where he obtained a BA and Ph.D. in history.
  • After leaving university C.J. practised law, before putting all of his years of academic research to good use and creating the bestselling Shardlake novels, set during the reign of Henry VIII and featuring Thomas Cromwell.
  • C.J. is now one of the most popular Historical Crime novelists, praised for both his historical accuracy and eye for detail; he has also created one of the most memorable characters of recent years, the hunchbacked lawyer, Matthew Shardlake.
  • In addition to the Shardlake novels, C.J. has also written two standalone novels, Winter in Madrid, a spy novel set just after the Spanish Civil War in 1940, and Dominion, a political thriller which reimagines 1950s Britain as a Nazi state.
