Historical Mysteries for Art and Book Lovers
On Saturdays, I work the circulation desk of my school library, in the company of Annalise. In addition to being one of my fellow students in the library science Masters program, Annalise is pursuing a Masters in Art History. On a slow afternoon, we got talking about books. (Shocking, I realize!) We discovered that we’re both fans of mysteries set in any time period, and historical fiction.
So here’s a list of recommendations for Annalise
2. The Kate Martinelli mysteries by Laurie R. King. Start with Grave Talent
3. Gentlemen of the Road by Michael Chabon for the setting in the Caucasus mountains in 950 A.D., and for the adventures and bickering of Amram and Zelikman.
4.The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon because there’s an antiquarian book dealer and a mystery. And it’s really good.
What mysteries would you add for an art historian who loves antiquarian books?
