The Top Historical Mysteries of the Past Five Years

"The historical mystery genre gives readers that magical and page-turning combination of thick historical atmosphere along with the twists and turns of a propulsive plot—it just hits different.
Here are the most popular historical mysteries since 2017, which we put together based on Goodreads members' additions to their Want to Read shelves and the amount of buzz around each release. Readers have been consuming everything from 1970s Mexican neo-noir to Puritan witch hunt thrillers and fictional dramatizations of mysteries featuring Agatha Christie herself."
