Historical Mystery

Historical mystery is a subgenre of mystery fiction in which the main story involves a crime that takes place during a time of some historical significance, usually set prior to the 1970s.

Well-known historical mystery writers include Anne Perry and Steven Saylor.

Book Country's genre map will continue to change as new literary categories emerge and others fall out of fashion. If you write historical mysteries, explore this subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
