Justice and Revenge in Contemporary American Crime Fiction, Hardback Book

Justice and Revenge in Contemporary American Crime Fiction Hardback

Description

The detective figure in contemporary American crime fiction increasingly relies on revenge to bring about justice in a society where there has been a sharp decline in moral values.

This study demonstrates how the notion of the detective as a moral exemplar or heroic ideal breaks down in the works of writers such as James Ellroy and Sara Paretsky.
