Peter Tremayne is known for his wildly popular Sister Fidelma series, set in seventh-century Ireland. He is really Peter Berresford Ellis, a well-known Celtic historian, so I believe what I read of Celtic history in his Sister Fidelma series, which I love. An Ensuing Evil and Others has short stories set in many periods of history. I particularly enjoyed the five stories furthering the adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

Wasn't sure how I would like this book, but enjoyed it throughly. Never have come across this author before, but plan to read more of his books.
A collection of stories by the creator of the Sister Fidelma mysteries. Here he sets some of his stories during Shakespeare's times, then has several solved by Sherlock Holmes. As always, quite interesting. The format of a short story makes it perfect to keep in the car and read when you are up to several other things and need something to do while you are waiting for someone else.

This collection of short stories wasn't up to Tremayne's usual outstanding standards. Or perhaps I was just disappointed because it was more Sherlock Holmes and other London detectives and less of Sister Fidelma. That's what I really enjoy.
Only one of these stories is Sister Fidelma, but I am really enjoying this book -- love the Shakespearean mysteries, Sherlock Holmes and the one with Dickens.
I like historical fiction a lot and this book of short stories led me to buy more books by this author. I just don't like short stories that much.

Wonderful collection of historical mysteries
and it includes some very good Sherlockiana
