Note: 'If you cannot speak truth at a beheading, when can you speak it?' England, May 1536. Anne Boleyn is dead, decapitated in the space of a heartbeat by a hired French executioner. As her remains are bundled into oblivion, Thomas Cromwell breakfasts with the victors.

But can a nation, or a person, shed the past like a skin? General adult

This could probably be the last Reacher book I read. I found it tedious and had to force myself to bother getting to the end. Disappointed as I had been looking forward to it being released. The very theme of story was just ridiculous.
