She is now the author of four detective series, including the critically acclaimed Sharon McCone series of more than two dozen novels. This collection critically assesses Marcia Mullers writing and reevaluates current critical views on womens detective fiction in general. In the first two of the books three sections, essays explore Mullers engagement with modern and postmodern feminism, ethnicity, and the socially underprivileged.

The third section focuses on one of Mullers major themes, the trauma of history. Drawing from the feminist, historicist, mythic, psychoanalytic, and cultural approaches found in all three sections, the conclusion offers a panoramic perspective on Mullers accomplishments.
