History Mysteries Challenge

I recently signed up for the Historical Mysteries Challenge sponsored by Mysteries and Musings blog. The idea is to read 5 historical mysteries over the next three months. The only problem is which historical mysteries? There are so many and I'm such a huge fan that it's been hard for me to narrow it down. I do know that I don't want them to be all series mysteries. I'd like to have at least 2 that are one offs.  Here are my choices thus far.

  • Tears of Pearl by Tasha Alexander
  • Castle Noir by Carole Nelson Douglas
  • Royal Flush by Rhys Bowen
  • The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie
  • Miss Match by Sara Mills
  • The Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman
  • The Dante Club by Matthew Pearl
  • 85 Bond Street by Ellen Horan
  • The Face of Stranger by Anne Perry
  • Murder on Bank Street by Victoria Thompson
  • The Agency: The Spy in the House - Ying Lee
  • Descent into Dust - Jacqueline Lepore
  • The Spymaster Chronicles - C.W. Gortner
And that's just to name a few.
