Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

England in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster. Into this impasse steps Thomas Cromwell: a wholly original man, a charmer, and a bully, both idealist and opportunist, astute in reading people, and implacable in his ambition. But Henry VIII is volatile: one day tender, one day murderous. Cromwell helps him break the opposition, but what will be the price of his triumph?
