Two writers of historical mysteries I enjoy are:

The Falco series by Lindsey Davis. Falco is a detective in Vespasian's Rome. The first in the series is "Silver Pigs".

The Lord Meren series by Lynda S. Robinson. Lord Meren is the "Eyes and Ears" of the Pharoah Tutenkhamen. The first in the series is Murder in the Place of Anubis.

Fantasy, I highly recommend the Vlad Taltos series by Steven Brust. The first is Jhereg.

I also like Cordelia's Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold. I really don't care for the rest of the series, but I really liked the first one.
