Early in the new millennium a summer’s holiday reading might include detectives of very diverse kinds: a neurotic Edinburgh detective inspector, a feisty native Alaskan tour-guide-cum-detective, a British black investigative journalist, a postmodern and lesbian translator-investigator in modern Barcelona, a damaged male excavating racial crime and confusion in south-east Australia. Places and peoples of the modern world are richly represented in crime fiction through the focal figure who detects the crime, and these modern authors — Ian Rankin, Dana Stabenow, Mike Phillips, Barbara Wilson and Peter Temple — will all be discussed in Part III as a component of modern diversity.
