Product Description


""Barnett, a lawyer and teacher of political science, has collected mystery fiction with female protagonists for more than 20 years. Here she focuses on those protagonists instead of on female mystery writers...Barnett offers a unique and highly subjective approach to the genre. Recommended where there is an interst in 'mystery women'and for readers' advisory services."" --Library Journal

As a mystery writer this book is a good reference and just enjoyable reading. It's fun to look up characters and authors I read years ago.
