Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Shardlake says, early in Revelation, that he'd just turned 40 (and discovered his first gray hairs when looking in the mirror) -- so shouldn't Revelation and Heartstone be the only books from that series on this particular list? (Great series though it is!) Particularly not, in any event, Dissolution, which takes place a full 6 years before Revelation ...

Fiona Hurley The narrator-protagonist of Rebecca is a young woman in her 20s. Her husband is older, but he's not the "main character".
