9780140072631: Bloody Murder: From the Detective Story to the Crime Novel: A History

In celebration of distinguished author/critic Julian Symons' 80th year, here is the third and final revised edition of his classic history of mystery fiction. The views expressed here are as candid as ever. One bestselling writer is called unreadable, another compared to writers of "strip cartoon stories". But the general tone is warmly appreciative of every sort of book within the genre.

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
