" Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose introduced millions of readers to the special mixture of enchantment and thrills offered by historical detective fiction ( historical meaning taking place before the author's birth.)
Historical Whodunits - the first anthology of historical detective stories to appear in print - brilliantly represents this relatively rare type of literature. "

" Here are twenty-three stories, with an astounding variety of settings ranging from Egypt in the fourteenth century B.C. to the Yukon circa 1900.
The detectives include an ancient Egyptian sage, whose case involves not a locked room but a locked tomb; a Roman slave, whose investigation of a treasury theft leads him to a very high personage; the perspicacious twelfth-century monk Brother Cadfael, author Ellis Peter's greatest creation; William Shakespeare, hot on the trail of the murderer of Christopher Marlowe; Samuel Johnson, with Boswell as his Doctor Watson; C. Auguste Dupin, in a new adventure and still at his favorite recreation of showing up the perfect of the Paris police just as he unfailingly did in the original stories by Poe; and Sherlock Holmes, in a story by the son of Arthur Conan Doyle. "
