Jim Carroll--Your comment regarding the Sansom and Parris series is nearly spot on. I guess that the former has staked out the Henry period, while Parris moved the time period a generation later to the late Elizabethan, and they could be read as a whole...which I did. At any rate, I think the Shardlake series is better overall as to characterization, plot, and a sense of time and place.
