Deviance in Contemporary Crime Fiction, Paperback / softback Book

Deviance in Contemporary Crime Fiction Paperback / softback

Part of the Crime Files series



This book explores the three aspects of deviance that contemporary crime fiction manipulates: linguistic, social, and generic.

Gregoriou conducts case studies into crime series by James Patterson, Michael Connelly and Patricia Cornwell, and investigates the way in which these novelists correspondingly challenge those aforementioned conventions.
