"Covering the forms that murder fiction takes, Anatomy includes analyses of texts by Doyle, Christie, Sayers, Hammett, Chandler, Highsmith, Jim Thompson, Thomas Harris, and others. It explains how hybrids such as the police procedural or the serial killer novel can be produced by grafting aspects of one subgenre onto those of another. It demonstrates that the various permutations of murder fiction make for very different narrative textures and reading experiences."--BOOK JACKET.
