I've not read it [yet], but I think Barbara Wilson's _Gaudi Afternoon_
is generally seen as something of a high point among queer texts.

Look out also for Mary Wings 'She Came...' series:
eg, _She Came in a Flash_; _She Came Too Late_.

You may already be aware of Sally Munt's full length study, entitled
_Murder by the Book?_ which gets a bit dense in places but is generally
useful, not least because it's the only full length study dealing with
lesbian crime fiction. It *is* by a lesbian, but don't worry, it's well
footnoted ;->
