Kate Ross's "Julian Kestrel" Mysteries
a book list by Leah Smith, librarian and avid reader
Kate Ross was a mystery writer as well as an attorney in Boston, Massachusetts. She wrote 4 fabulous historical mysteries featuring the dandy Julian Kestrel. Unfortunately this very talented woman passed away in 1998 at the age of 42. If you're a historical mystery fan then it's imperative that you read these four well-researched, well-written, intellectual treasures. Read them in order, or as a stand-alone, just read them. You hear me? You must read them.
