RARA-AVIS: The article "Murder She Wrote" ain't about cozies

This article in the Financial Times might be of interest to a lot of us here. It's about violence, particularly against women, as it's shown in fiction.


Karen Slaughter's bio (author of the article.)

Karin Slaughter is one of a new breed of women crimewriters, taking over from the more genteel style of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers. Since her first book three years ago, Slaughter has shot to the top of the bestseller lists with crime novels that are full of graphic descriptions of violence, depravity and blood. Her fourth book, "Indelible" is just published.
