Order of Sir Roger Shallot Books
Sir Roger Shallot is the lead character in a series of historical mystery novels by English author Paul Doherty, originally written under the name Michael Clynes. The novels take place during the reign of King Henry VIII. Roger Shallot is a Falstaffian rogue who works as an agent for Cardinal Wolsey. The stories are somewhat exaggerated by Shallot, who tends to use some hyperbole in his first-person narration.
Paul Doherty began his Sir Roger Shallot series in 1991 with the novel The White Rose Murders. The series lasted six novels, concluding in 1996 with The Relic Murders.
