This is a great anthology of historical mysteries. I've re-read many of the stories and discovered new author's I like. I've got a full review on my blog.

Many short historical mystery stories. Sometimes I needed a dictionary for words that were cultural. This led to some confusion on my part, especially when the story took place in Europe a long time ago. Most were very good stories.
