    Sally R. Munt
Murder by the Book? is a thorough - and thoroughly enjoyable - look at the blossoming genre of the feminist crime novel in Britain and the United States. Sally R. Munt asks why the form has proven so attractive as a vehicle for oppositional politics: whether the pleasures of detective fiction can be truly transgressive: and when exactly it was that the dyke detective appeared as the new super-hero for today. Along the way Munt poses some critical questions about the relations between fiction and activism, politics and representations, the writer and the reader. This will be an important book both for addicts of the genre and for students and their students.
