May 1536: Anne Boleyn is executed, and Thomas Cromwell breakfasts with the victors. The blacksmith's son from Putney emerges from the spring's bloodbath to continue his climb to power and wealth, while his master, Henry VIII, settles to short-lived happiness with his third queen, Jane Seymour. All of England lies at Cromwell's feet, ripe for innovation and religious reform. But in this powerful conclusion to Hilary Mantel's Booker Award-winning Wolf Hall trilogy—praised as "a triumphant end to a spellbinding story" by NPR—Cromwell's enemies are gathering in the shadows, and his one friend is even worse—indeed, how long can anyone survive under Henry's cruel and capricious gaze?
