The First Ellis Peters Memorial Anthology of Historical Crime.
Edith Pargeter, who also wrote under the name Ellis Peters, combined her passion for history and storytelling in her creation of the much-loved monk Brother Cadfael. It was she who paved the way for many others to explore the past through the thriving field of historical mysteries, and for this she was loved by readers and other writers alike.
'Past Poisons' is a bumper collection of 20 outstanding new short stories by the leading British and American historical crime writers, all wishing to pay tribute to the work of Ellis Peters. It is a fitting memorial - and a landmark anthology that no fan of historical crime can do without.
The book features writers such as: Lindsey Davis, Paul Doherty, Edward D Hoch, Peter Lovesey, Anne Perry, Steven Saylor and many others.
