Talking about Detective Fiction

Author: P.D. James
Stars: 5
Review by: Ann Marie

P.D. James (now deceased) wrote a nonfiction book examining the mystery genre, from its beginnings to the present. While her book focuses on British mysteries, James also covers American mysteries, including the hard-boiled detective fiction of Hammett and Chandler. Insightful and entertaining. Mystery fans will enjoy this book. I also discovered some authors I plan to check out during my next trip to the library!
