Mystery Author Index

I have recently discovered the pleasure of reading historical mystery novels. I have found them to be well written and frequently less violent than their modern day counterparts. The detectives use their brains to solve crimes rather than resorting to laboratory tests and other methods of modern forensic analysis. This page is not meant to be a comprehensive treatment of the field, but only a list of some of the authors which I have enjoyed.
