Josephine Tey's Brat Farrar is a great favorite of mine. Also, add me to the Daughter of Time fans.
Another favorite is The Burning Court, by John Dickson Carr. It has an impossible murder and twists back and forth between supernatural and natural explanations. John Dickson Carr (who also wrote under the name Carter Dickson) was a Golden Age master of the locked room murder.
