Historical Mysteries are a popular genre of fiction that merges a great "who done it" classic mystery with breath-taking scenery and addicting period detail. It's the perfect read for traditional mystery lovers looking for a little something extra as well as historical fiction fans looking to spice things up. After all, how often do you get to travel to ancient Rome, become a Victorian lady of stature, or connect with your inner 1920s man-about-town persona, all while getting to the bottom of a spine tingling mystery? It's simply the best of both worlds.
