Deviance in Contemporary Crime Fiction

Christiana Gregoriou

This book directly explores the three aspects of deviance that contemporary American crime fiction manipulates: linguistic, social, and generic. Gregoriou conducts case studies into crime series by James Patterson, Michael Connelly and Patricia Cornwell, and investigates the way in which these novelists correspondingly challenge linguistic norms, the boundaries of acceptable social behavior, and the relevant generic conventions.
