    eBook ✓ ProphecyÓ SJ Parris ProphecyKind of fun and ridiculous exmonk detectivegrisly murder business It's a lot like the Shardlake book I read and I guess sensibly the publishers have branded them almost identically so that before I read either I'd assumed they were all the same series but while the Shardlake one is also ridiculous it's ridiculous in a simultaneously spectacular and elegant way I might read another Shardlake I probably don't need to read another of these
