Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The Poe - it's not set in England, is it?


message 2: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Neither is The Alienist or the Matthew Pearl books.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Crocodile on the Sandbank is set, almost all of it, in Victorian Egypt.

Cindy - you want me to remove anything?


message 4: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Yes, remove the Matthew Pearl books, The Alienist, and The Poe. Leave the Crocodile book, since it starts in England and the main characters are English.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads What about The Mummy Case and Curse of the Pharaohs?


message 6: by Elisabeth (new)

Elisabeth Why only England? I've read some excellent Victorian mysteries set in America, too. (And The Mystery of the Yellow Room is set in France, incidentally.)


message 7: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Just because. Nothing wrong with 19th century mysteries set in the US, but I personally wouldn't call them Victorian. You're welcome to start a new list for those!


message 8: by Elisabeth (new)

Elisabeth I don't think I could come up with enough for a whole list yet! At this point it would be mostly Anna Katharine Green. :)


message 9: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Elisabeth wrote: "I don't think I could come up with enough for a whole list yet! At this point it would be mostly Anna Katharine Green. :)"

It's still the Victorian era, Victoria was still reigning, even if some of the mysteries took place elsewhere. Quit nitpicking. It's a good list for those who are looking for mysteries set during that time period.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Excellent question.


message 11: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Removed it!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher is nonfiction, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall isn't a mystery. Stay or go?


message 13: by Cindy (new)

Cindy I'm fine with nonfiction, but I don't know about the Anne Bronte. I'd say take it off.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Aye, Ma'm. Brontë book gone.


message 15: by Lajeanne Leveton (new)

Lajeanne Leveton The Victorian era was "real" in the U.S. and Canada as well as the UK.
