About this item
This thrilling BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation, based on C J Sansom's bestselling Tudor crime novel, is set during the last days of Thomas Cromwell. London, 1540, hunchback lawyer Matthew Shardlake has lived quietly in the three years since he was asked by Cromwell to investigate a murder at Scarnsea monastery on England's south coast (a story told in "Dissolution"). But his quiet life is soon forgotten as he rushes to solve two very different but urgent mysteries: save the life of a young girl accused of a terrible murder; and, discover who has stolen the last precious batch of Greek Fire, a mythical weapon of mass destruction. Accompanied by Cromwell's man - the young and impetuous Barak - Shardlake desperately searches for clues against the backdrop of a hot and stinking London summer. A fast and furious crime drama, "Dark Fire" features ethical dilemmas, intriguing characters and a luminous historical setting. Starring Justin Salinger as Shardlake, Bryan Dick as Barak and Robert Glenister as Thomas Cromwell. Duration: 2 hours 30 mins approx.
