I've read a few of Sansom's Shardlake series, and I enjoyed these too. Dominion is totally different, but he's a good writer.Cheers Paladin, that's nice of you to say so. When I find something that I think people might like (books, films, TV, music etc.) I do tend to go to town on it on these and other forums, so it's nice when somebody takes an interest.
Definitely worth sticking with "The Lies of Lock Lamora" - one of the things I love about it is the structure and the shift in chronology you mention. Lynch uses this to brilliant effect on a couple of occasions, so don't worry, I'm sure your audio is not messed up.
I've got "Winter in Madrid" by C.J.Sansom lined up for later in the year - downloaded it when it was 0.99p, but i want to read it when I might be in and around Madrid a few times later this year (restrictions allowing) whilst my eldest daughter is studying there.
I'll definitely persevere with the Lamora book too. I have it on my Kindle, so I might read it and listen simultaneously.
