Crime has existed from the dawn of time and these investigations take us back to the not-so-good ol' days.
Jim, which is your favorite Collins book so far?
Joy, that's hard to say. I liked a lot of them. "Butcher's Dozen" gave me the creeps. Have you read it? I thought it was well written. I enjoyed "The Titanic Murders" & "The Hindenberg Murders" I haven't read "The Pearl Harbor Murders" yet. I'll get to it eventually:-)
Have you read Agatha Christie's historical mystery "Death Comes As The End"? It is a about a serial killer stalking a family in ancient Egypt. I really enjoyed that one.
Joy, have you read the historical mysteries by Sam McCarver? He writes the Professor John Darnell mysteries. There is "The Case of Cabin 13" set on the Titanic. "The Case of Compartment 7" set on The Orient Express (This one features a young Agatha Christie who is among the passengers) There is "The Case of The Second Seance" & the new book is "The Case of The Ripper's Revenge" Try them, they're not bad. All are in paperback.
Thanks, Jim, I have not read McCarver or "Butcher's Dozen". It's been awhile since I read "Death Comes As The End". I should reread it!
Yeah Joy, I love "Death Comes As The End" It's one of my favorite Christie novels. I just re-read "Evil Under The Sun" And read "Dead Man's Mirror"
Ijust stmbled upon "The investgations of Gordianus-The Finder" a series set in Acient Rome by Steven Saylor. They look intersting Joy
Has anyone read the ancient Roman mysteries by Marilyn Todd? I think her sleuth is a woman called Claudia.
Anyone who enjoys mysteries set in medieval England might like author Pat McIntosh. I just finished 'The Harper's Quine' (2004), and while I figured out the ending, it was a great story with lots of historical details. He has at least one more book out
