Description

In the early chapters of this book, the authors examine the crime novels of Wilkie Collins, George R. Sims, Grant Allen, and Anna Katherine Green, and discover the splendid and daunting lady detective Miss Van Snoop. Later on, they explore the period in this century in which women writers made the detective story their own - Christie, Sayers, Allingham, Marsh, and many more.
