Meet some fascinating females:

Jennie Baxer, 1890s journalist and world travellerNelvana of the Northern Lights, created for comic book-starved Canadians during the Second World Warthe 60s' Eve Adam, the "Rock Hit of Prague," whose methods violate all the "rules" for detective booksand, very much of the 1990s, vampire detective Vicki Nelson, whose beat is Toronto's Queen Street West

As well as the fifteen investigating women in the book, Skene-Melvin's introduction describes hundreds of female sleuths and their creators in an in-depth analysis of women detective fiction by Canadians.

You will recognize many of the writers included in Investigating Women: Grant Allen, Robert Barr, Marisa De Franceschi, Adrian Dingle, Katherine V. Forrest, Hulbert Footner, Maurice Gagnon, Margaret Haffner, Joan Hall Hovey, Tanya Huff, Medora Sale, Josef Skvorecky, and Betsy Struthers.

For each of the selections a brief note sets the story; bibliographies help readers find other books by the authors featured in Investigating Women.
