MEDIA REVIEWS

'Traditionally crime fiction ends with identifying the criminal and thus re-establishing the social and moral order. However Susan demonstrates that the six writers are concerned with replotting the process of crime novels in ways which affect the reading process.' - Christopher Dean, The Dorothy L. Sayers Society Newsletter
