What a wonderful thread - adult mysteries.  Several of my favorites haven't
shown up yet and I can resist adding my two cents worth.

Stuart M Kaminsky -  Detective is in Russia, some of the older ones are before
the fall of the iron curtain.

John Dunning -  antique book seller in Denver (only two titles so far)

Edward Marston -  shakespearian England, detective is a book holder with a
theatre group

Margaret Frazer - Medieval England, nun  (lovers of the cadfael mysteries will
really like these)

Miriam Grace Monfredo - 1850  New York, abolitionists, womens rights etc,
detective is the town librarian.

I love these kinds of mysteries because with the mystery there is the chance to
experience another time and place - the kind of every day details of life.  I
would like to hear from some others as to why this genure (mysteries set in
other times and places) are so popular.
