"Another series set in the same general era is by S.J. Parris."
I enjoyed the frit of her novels, but was struck by the spooky similarity (almost to the point of plagiarism) of the appearance, titles and content of the Sansome books.
A brief glance at them could confuse you into thinking they were part of the Shardlake series
A bit off period to medieval, but could I recommend the riveting Cicero (hopefully) trilogy by Robert Harris.
Waiting for that last in the series is a little like waiting for the other shoe to fall.
An excellent peep into Ancient Roman politics and intrigue.
