Historical Mysteries

One of my favorite genres of fiction is historical mysteries.  These novels have becomes quite popular in the last few years.  The best examples of this genre are well written historical novels which happen to contain a mystery.  I really enjoy reading these novels because of their historical settings.  I have read historical mysteries set  in ancient Egypt and Rome, seventh century Ireland, medieval England and France, and China.

Some of my favorite historical sleuths are:

Brother Cadfael - a monk in medieval England, by Ellis Peters

Sister Frevisse - a nun in medieval England, by Margaret Frazer

Sister Fidelma - a religieuse in seventh century Ireland, by Peter Tremayne

Marcus Didius Falco - a Roman detective, by Lindsey Davis
