Top customer reviews
The standard of each story is generally good, admirably illustrating the dual pleasures of reading into this genre: compelling msyteries spiced up with a strong historical ambience.
An unexpected delight is Gillian Bradshaw's entry in which fourth-century historian Ammianus Marcellinus turns detective on the trail of the vicious Anicii family.
Hopefully it won't be too long before Mike Ashley assembles another collection. This one certainly relieved many a dreary tube journey.
