At a moment when contemporary culture is again coming to terms with new and challenging theories about the relationship between the mind, identity and selfhood, this book will offer a timely and challenging discussion of the relationship between popular literature, science, and what it means to be human. It will be of interest to an academic and non-academic readership concerned with the history of detective fiction, to researchers of the representation of mental
illness and also law in literature, and to scholars and students of twentieth century literature more generally. The book's engaging prose style, skilful organisation and lucid presentation of evidence
and close readings will make it accessible to both students and non-specialist readers, at the same time as it will prove fresh and rewarding for specialists.
