This collection of original essays is the first to evaluate multicultural detective fiction from a scholarly perspective. The contributors tackle such issues as postcolonialism, feminist theory, gay/lesbian perspectives, and ethnic and cultural confrontations as they show the range of frequencies on which multicultural mystery writing sounds, beyond simply escape and entertainment. This anthology began as a special session at the 1995 Modern Language Association conference.

Gosselin has a genius for both talent-spotting and editing, and the essays she includes in Multicultural Detective Fiction refresh and extend one's understanding of the genre....This is a breakthrough collection in many respects, and it makes many excellent points.
