In For the Kill

In For the Kill


Novelist Mike Phillips examines an apparent reluctance to view black detectives as heroes in British crime fiction. Along the way, he examines how black literature has changed its focus from narratives questioning the nature of identity and freedom to embrace other genres, and compares the development of UK-based writers to their American counterparts, including Walter Mosley and Barbara Neely. From 2011.
