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.

Has anyone read Sebastion Faulks Human Traces? DH is reading it just now and says its a good read, don't fancy it myself, but he says, you have to read it.

SF is an excellent writer, and an amazing competitor in that panel game on R4 where they do a quiz on literature and write parodies.

I have Seb Faulks Human Traces in paperback; have read it but didn't like it and admit to being very bored. However all his books are different.I read Engleby last year, very chilling!
