Have just recently discovered this author, and must say I am really impressed! Halfway through Dominion at the moment [There was never a second world war, but Germany and the Nazis now run the UK. Set in a very grey England in the 1950's] However I thought that Winter In Madrid[set in Spain during/after Civil war there] was even better! Such wonderful writing, and a page turner kind of book as well, brilliant. He also writes the historical novels [series] with MattthewShardlake, lawyer, murder mysteries, Revelation was one that I read recently.
