Description
From the 1840s to the 1950s, every important element of crime fiction was invented, including such archetypal investigators as the police detective, the amateur sleuth, the hard-boiled private eye, and the secret agent. Featuring more than 200 rare covers and classic illustrations in color, this book covers this crucial period, with information on such seminal writers as Arthur Conan Doyle, Wilkie Collins, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Georges Simenon, Cornell Woolrich, and Agatha Christie. Peter Haining also shows how unknown writers and illustrators were equally responsible for establishing a genre that became a cornerstone of popular culture.
