The Mirror and the Light 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. The blacksmith�euro;�s son from Putney emerges from the spring�euro;�s bloodbath to continue his climb to power and wealth; while his formidable master; Henry VIII; settles to short-lived happiness with his third queen; Jane Seymour. Cromwell is a man with only his wits to rely on; he has no great family to back him; no private army. Despite rebellion at home; traitors plotting abroad and the threat of invasion testing Henry�euro;�s regime to breaking point; Cromwell�euro;�s robust imagination sees a new country in the mirror of the future. But can a nation; or a person; shed the past like a skin? Do the dead continually unbury themselves? What will you do; the Spanish ambassador asks Cromwell; when the king turns on you; as sooner or later he turns on everyone close to him?
Bring Up the Bodies The second book in Hilary Mantel�euro;�s award-winning Wolf Hall trilogy; with a stunning new cover design to celebrate the publication of the much anticipated The Mirror and the Light.

Bring Up the Bodies unlocks the darkly glittering court of Henry VIII; where Thomas Cromwell is now chief minister. With Henry captivated by plain Jane Seymour and rumours of Anne Boleyn's faithlessness whispered by all; Cromwell knows what he must do to secure his position. But the bloody theatre of the queen's final days will leave no one unscathed.
