Peter Tremayne is the author of the Sister Fidelma historical mystery series.
In this book Tremayne has compiled of fourteen short mystery stories featuring a unique assemblage of sleuths.
Macbeth, Shakespeare's Scottish monarch, before he attains the throne.
Doctor Watson relating some of Sherlock Holmes's lesser known mysteries.
Charles Dickens before he became a famous author.
Constable Hardy Drews serving in London during the time of Shakespeare.
Bengali Inspector Ram Jayram during the British Raj.
Captain Richard Roscarrock aboard the HMS Deerhound during the age of sail, investigating a murder that took place during a naval sea battle.
Doctors Ross and Fane solving a locked room mystery aboard an airliner cruising at 32,000 feet.
And, of course, Sister Fidelma finding the true solution to an apparent open-and-shut case.
I enjoyed reading about these different sleuths solving unique mysteries during different historical eras.
