My copy of 'Off With His Head' - my personal pick from her long list of whodunnits - modestly carries a blurb praising Marsh as 'the finest writer in English of the pure, classical puzzle whodunnit', and despite the primacy of Christie, I think this is fair. The SPQR series is a collection of historical mystery stories by John Maddox Roberts set in the time of the Roman Republic.. SPQR (the original title of the first book, until the sequels were released) is a Latin initialism for Senatus Populusque Romanus ("Senate and People of Rome"), the official name of the Republic.. Chronological Orders Edit. I: The King's Gambit (70 BC) — Decius.

From the ancient world to medieval Europe, enigmatic mysteries to enthrall and enchant. Divided into three main sections, "The Ancient World", "The Middle Ages" and "Regency and Gaslight", The Mammoth Book of Historical Whodunnits includes: The Thief versus Rhampsinitus by Herodotus - probably the earliest detective story ever written.
