Synopsis: The essays in this collection grapple with a wide range of issues important to the female sleuth - the most important, perhaps, being the off-heard challenge as to her suitability for the job. Not surprisingly, gender issues are the main focus of all the essays; indeed, in detective novels with a woman protagonist, these issues are often right at the surface.
Some of the papers see the female sleuth as an important force in popular fiction, but many also question the notion that the woman detective is a positive model for feminists. They argue that fictional female sleuths have lost the 'otherness' that a feminine approach to the genre should encourage. Collectively, the essays also reveal the differences between British and American perspectives on the woman detective.
