Overview

Darrell Schweitzer’s first mystery collection explores the murderous impulse in a variety of historical settings. Three stories are set in ancient Rome, two of them featuring Pliny the Younger as investigator. Two are Shakespearean mysteries, one in which King Henry V plays detective, and another based on The Two Noble Kinsmen. Three Sherlock Holmes tales involve the apparent misapplication of the Great Detective’s methods to the supernatural, a revelation of one of Watson’s unwritten cases, and a multi-genre record-breaker—an alternate history, vampire cat detective story.

Great entertainment from a master storyteller!
