01 December 1995
Meet some fascinating females:
- Jennie Baxer, 1890s journalist and world traveller
- Nelvana of the Northern Lights, created for comic book-starved Canadians during the Second World War
- the 60s’ Eve Adam, the "Rock Hit of Prague," whose methods violate all the "rules" for detective books
- and, very much of the 1990s, vampire detective Vicki Nelson, whose beat is Toronto’s Queen Street West
As well as the fifteen investigating women in the book, Skene-Melvin’s introduction describes hundreds of female sleuths and their creators in an in-depth analysis of women detective fiction by Canadians.
You will recognize many of the writers included in Investigating Women: Grant Allen, Robert Barr, Marisa De Franceschi, Adrian Dingle, Katherine V. Forrest, Hulbert Footner, Maurice Gagnon, Margaret Haffner, Joan Hall Hovey, Tanya Huff, Medora Sale, Josef Skvorecky, and Betsy Struthers.
