For those who like to perambulate through the past in their mysteries, Crime Through Time is the perfect companion. Edited by Sharan Newman (medieval mysteries) and Miriam Grace Monfredo's (mid-Victorian American mysteries), this collection of historical mystery stories spans ancient Egypt to World War II and features some of the most well known names in the field. Of particular note is Nicholas diChario's "The Soldier and His Dead Companion," which posits a new solution to a wartime mystery; and the welcome returns of diva Geraldine Farrar and the prank-loving Great Caruso in Barbara Paul's "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Corpse," and Peter Lovesey's lecherous but amiable Bertie, Prince of Wales, in "Bertie and the Boat Race."
