  Maybe I have honed my senses on which R-A messages to skim or maybe the skirmishes on the topic predate my arrival, but I don't recall seeing much derision of women HB and noir writers on this list. I scanned the archives as well for evidence, but may have missed something.

Vicki Hendricks, Val McDermid, Denise Mina, Patricia Highsmith are among my favorites and, with the exception of Highsmith, I learned about them from the rave reviews on this list.
