Writing Quote: The Historical Mystery Novel

Historical mystery fiction are for those who enjoy going to a different time as well as place. To create believability, an author of well-written historical mysteries has to do without the conveniences of modern methods and forensics, while incorporating myriad details that authors of modern-set mysteries can take for granted. These authors not only incorporate such details, but do so smoothly so that there are no disjointed pauses for explanation, no interruption of the reader's pleasure in the story.
