An Encyclopedia of Leading Women Characters in Mystery Fiction, Volume 2: (1980-1989). Many bibliographers focus on women who write. Lawyer Barnett looks at women who detect, at women as sleuths and at the evolving roles of women in professions and in society. Excellent for all women's studies programs as well as for the mystery hound.
