Update from N.S. Hurt

Update from N.S. Hurt. The now quarterly list of new historical mysteries from N.S. Hurt came out last week and is a bumper crop of good reading. After eliminating the mid-20th century and American settings and the ones which were more fiction than mystery, I was still left with about two dozen entries to consider. I’ve already enjoyed reading two of them: Carola Dunn’s Black Ship and Peter King’s Hangman’s Corner. There were several books that haven’t been released yet and a couple that won’t be out until the next year, including titles from Alys Clare, Lindsey Davis, and Rosemary Rowe. Fortunately, while I’m waiting for those, I was able to put a half-dozen on hold at my local library. Also, there are some authors who I’ve never tried before, but have been writing for a while, such as Louis Bayard and Sara Fraser. Therefore, I’m going to start with their previous books so as to jump into their series at their beginnings. There was some overlap between Hurt’s list and the recommendations from Clues Unlimited, but enough difference to make perusing each worthwhile.
