Summary (From the publisher):

A feast of historical detective stories, from the earliest known locked-room mystery (35,000 BC), through ancient Rome and China to medieval England, the Wild West, the Indian Raj and Victorian London:

Ellis Peters unravels a fourteenth-century witch trial.

Robert van Gulik's real-life magistrate Judge Dee, in seventh-century China.

A new story by Peter Tremayne featuring Sister Fidelma, in Dark Age Ireland.

Edward Hoch turns Ben Snow, his cowboy-investigator, loose on the range.

Margaret Frazer's Sister Frevisse, and a medieval Oxford murder mystery.

The Roman detective Gordianus cracks a theatrical case with the help of Steven Saylor.

Lillian de la Torre, the great Dr Sam: Johnson and his faithful Watson, James Boswell.

Roger the Chapman, Kate Sedley's traveller-detective, has only one night to solve a murder.

And introducing two new historical detectives, Captain Cook and William Shakespeare, and many more...
