Sansom also had success with two standalone historical novels, Winter in Madrid and Dominion.

He has won several awards for his historical crime writing, most recently the Crime Writers’ Association’s prestigious Cartier Diamond Dagger Award for outstanding contribution to the genre.

Rejt described his late colleague as “an extremely private person, Chris wanted from the start to be published quietly and without fanfare.”

“But he always took immense pleasure in the enthusiastic public responses to his novels… he was working on his new Shardlake novel, Ratcliff, when he died, but his deteriorating health made progress painfully slow: his Meticulous historical research and his writings were always so important to him.

“I will miss him greatly, not only as a wonderfully talented writer who brought joy to millions, but also as a dear friend with immense compassion and integrity.”
