I love to read historical mysteries. I don't know if this began when I read Caleb Carr's The Alienist  for the first time or with my discovery of Anne Perry's William Monk  series, but the fascination hasn't dimmed. Most people who read in this genre are attracted to a particular historical era and some of my favorite settings include Victorian England, post-World War I Europe, and Ancient Rome. In just the World War I category are great authors like Charles Todd , Jacqueline Winspear  and Rennie Airth  exploring the psychological effects of war and solving mysteries (because we do need SOME closure).
