About this title


Book by Nichols, Victoria, Thompson, Susan

From Library Journal:

This is a specialized catalog listing protagonists from mystery and crime fiction series written by women (although men with female pseudonyms or teams with a woman member are also included). It is a special catalog as well, for the researchers approach the project like the avid mystery readers they are. Categorizing the nearly 600 characters under academia, police, religious, artists, and other labels, they critique each character's personality and development through the series, demonstrating true familiarity with them all. This sense of reader giving reader information makes the book a valuable find for anyone who enjoys mystery and crime fiction. A worthwhile addition to the reference shelf. Martin J. Hudacs, Towanda H.S., Pa.
