In my column this week for the Kirkus Reviews Web site, I have written about “five of the best and most interesting” historical crime novelists around: Jonathan Rabb, Anne Perry, Stuart M. Kaminsky, Edward Marston, and Michael Gregorio. You’ll find that new column here.
Of course, my list could’ve gone well beyond five names. There are myriad more purveyors of historical mysteries working today. So I also put together a page of other top picks from this subgenre.
Please feel free to chime in on the Kirkus site with your own suggestions of what recent or older works fans of historical crime fiction--like me--should be reading.
