Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Hardboiled & High Heeled: The Woman Detective in Popular Culture, Linda Mizejewski (Ziegfeld Girl: Image and Icon in Culture and Cinema) examines the often ambiguous role of the female investigator in crime fiction, TV and film. Thomas Harris's The Silence of the Lambs and Jodie Foster's portrayal of Clarice Starling receive special emphasis in this lively feminist study. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
