"A Companion to Crime Fiction goes into enormous detail but is reasonably easy to read. It is not an academic-styled book but a guide to how crime fiction has developed over time to accommodate an increasingly demanding audience/reader. With essays from some of the most educated scholars in this field of research, the reader gains a greater understanding in terms of a general overview of the genre, individual authors and producers of film, the blurred lines between crime fiction and other genres and an in depth, well researched analysis of crime fiction itself." (M/C Reviews, November 2010)


This cutting edge Companion brings together a series of forty-seven original essays from some of the world's leading authorities to provide the definitive guide to crime fiction from its origins in the eighteenth century to its phenomenal present day popularity

Part one of the volume follows the development of crime fiction over the last three centuries, examining the traditions and conventions of the genre, as well as its cultural and social contexts, before moving on, in part two, to explore the different types of genres and subgenres that have emerged. The final chapters profile twenty of the most significant crime writers and film makers - from William Godwin to Arthur Conan Doyle to Agatha Christie to Martin Scorsese - examining the ways in which they have shaped and influenced the field.
