This series beyond portraying a fascinating character /plot also offers interesting snapshots of the history of Edinburgh.

I am generally a fan of mystery, especially "English" titles.  If they also give reference to the socio-economic backgrounds of the place and mention iconic historical events; these ones I like the best. This series beyond portraying a fascinating character /plot also offers interesting snapshots of the history of Edinburgh. The ambiance similarly created by The Maltese Falcon which takes the reader back to San Francisco in early 20s, or Sherlock Holmes impressions from late 19th-century London (Submitted by Saied).
