Fans of historical mysteries will have a very good time perusing the third collection in an excellent anthology series. Editor Sharyn Newman has accumulated a variety of superb stories that will satisfy most readers with its strong contents. The introduction written by talented Victorian mystery author Anne Perry provides insight into the book, series, and overall sub-genre. <P>Many popular writers have contributed tales about their famous characters. Steven Sayor includes a new Gordionus story while Bruce Alexander provides a well-written original story. Miriam Grave Monefredi combines her Civil War knowledge with a Viet Nam widow¿s loss. Jan Burke, known for her police procedurals and amateur sleuths has written a historical supernatural mystery. Even alternate history great Harry Turtledove has entered the foray. All the stories are entertaining and fun to read, making this short story collection worth keeping. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
