International in scope and varied in its theoretical approaches, this collection of ten new critical essays examines the prevailing trends in recent crime fiction. Of particular interest are shifting, and increasingly globalized, conceptions of crime, as well as the genre’s response to technological, legal, and social changes at the end of the 20th century. Employing critical tools new to crime-fiction studies, the essays also gesture toward a future for genre scholarship.

Highlighting popular works by P.D. James, Colin Dexter, Ian Pears and Umberto Eco, among others, this is an intriguing examination of the treatment of religion in the genre of contemporary murder mystery novels. The other central theme examined in this book is that of justice. The narrative of any detective fiction novel depends on the murderer's ability to replace a crime with a convincingly constructed illusion of innocence, and to escape punishment by means of good manners. Erb also looks in detail at the theme of retribution in detective fiction. Can justice ever be anything more than retribution, death without hope? What satisfaction can be made for the loss of a human life? How can a murderer ever fully confess a crime and experience thanksgiving in final release from the consequences?
