A collection of original essays drawing on crime fiction and film to explore the implications of how we choose to represent crime to ourselves. By broadening the focus beyond classic English detective fiction, the American 'hard-boiled' crime novel and the gangster movie, it breathes new life into staple themes of crime fiction and cinema.
