1. Reception

Critical reception for Tombland has been positive. Stephanie Merritt writing for The Guardian commented that the novel is more of a grand historical epic than a tightly packed whodunnit. In a similar vein Andrew Taylor writing for The Spectator praised the book as a Tudor epic disguised as an historical crime novel.
