Peter Tremayne is one of the best loved writers of historical mysteries, his novels and stories published in over a dozen countries around the world. An Ensuing Evil collects for the first time fourteen of his historical mysteries ranging in time and place from 7th-century Ireland (featuring his best known sleuth, Fidelma of Cashel) and 8th-century Scotland (featuring the real-life Macbeth) to the recent history of Victorian England and beyond. These fourteen tales of murder, mayhem and mystery each display Tremayne's usual mix of compelling historical detail about the time period and a baffling puzzle that will delight and confound his ever-growning legion of fans.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have read several of Tremane's books in his Sister Fedelma. Series. They are good historical mysteries. I must say that I liked these short stories even more. There is one Sister Fedelma story but there are several with other detectives even some Sherlock Holmes. My favorites though were of a british policeman during Shakespears time that used quotes from the bard that fit into the stories. I hope he exspands on this character as I would certainly buy books based on this premise. Good writing, good mysteries, well thought out, chatacters that for short stories are well thought out and presented. I recommend this to anyone who likes mysteries with a touch of history.
