Description
Lindsay (library instruction, Washington State U. Libraries) offers biographies of 90 female English language mystery writers in this update to the 1994 edition. Writers who were deceased before 1994, or who have died since then but whose entries in the first edition remain complete, have been omitted. Entries on living writers have been updated, and many new names added. The authors were selected based on award receipts, commercial success, and critical acclaim. Each entry offers a short bibliography, a discussion of major works and themes, and a summary of critical response, followed by a complete bibliography. Multiple indexes allow readers to find works by author, series character name, sleuth type, and setting. The appendices list female nominees and recipients of various mystery awards.
