Bowling Green, Bowling Green University Popular Press, 1980. Light wear to DJ extremities with small closed tears to top spine.  Scholarly examination of the relation of crime & detective novels to mythmaking and the possibility, or lack of it, to the rational explanation of seemingly inexplicable phenomena.  Has the detective thriller contributed to what might be called serious literature?  The author says yes.  $16.95.
