New Series Crime Uncovered, Intellect Books

Intellect is currently looking for chapter contributions to The Detective, one of the first titles in  a new book series examining character types in crime fiction. The Detective, edited by Barry Forshaw (author of Death in a Cold Climate [Palgrave Macmillan] and editor of British Crime Writing [Harcourt]), is an examination – and celebration – of the police detective throughout the long history of crime literature, TV and film, and will be looking to identify the individual  characteristics that define these much loved characters and discuss how they relate to their  surroundings, country and class – and the criminals they relentlessly pursue.
