Irish detective fiction has enjoyed an international readership for over a decade, appearing on best-seller lists across the globe. But its breadth of hard-boiled and amateur detectives, historical fiction, and police procedurals has remained somewhat marginalized in academic scholarship. Exploring the work of some of its leading writers-including Peter Tremayne, John Connolly, Declan Hughes, Ken Bruen, Brian McGilloway, Stuart Neville, Tana French, Jane Casey, and Benjamin Black-The Contemporary Irish Detective Novel opens new ground in Irish literary criticism and genre studies. It considers the detective genre`s position in Irish Studies and the standing of Irish authors within the detective novel tradition.
