This highly accessible, lively and informative study gives a clear and comprehensive overview of recent trends in American crime fiction. Building on a discussion of the immediate predecessors, Bertens and D'haen focus on the work of popular and award-winning authors of the last fifteen years. Particular attention is given to writers who have reworked established conventions and explored new directions, especially women and those from ethnic minorities.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book is both an education and a joy..fresh insights into books published as recently as 1999.' - Choice

'The eminently utilitarian 'Crime File' series (under the custodianship of series editor Clive Bloom) steams ahead with another provocative and informed volume in Contemporary American Crime Fiction. Yet again (as in previous entries in the series), this is a truly eclectic mix of subject and approach, often eccentric, but always at the service of treating the crime fiction genre with the seriousness it deserves[...]this is a book with added value it will function as a useful shopping list for those who enjoy the genre.' - Barry Forshaw, Crime Time
