A postscript by the author mentions that she will be working on companion volumes of Detecting Women called Detecting Men and Detecting Kids. A number of new authors and their series are added to this edition, and the previous ones are updated. Much the same information as the previous edition, only much expanded. The author provides an alphabetical listing of titles this time. The author produces a nice listing of magazines & newsletters and many reference books on mystery fiction.
