International in scope, comparative in approach, Braham's study presents a unique inquiry into the ethical and aesthetic complexities that Latin American authors face in adapting genre detective fiction-a modern, metropolitan model-to radically diverse creative and ideological programs. Considering the work of writers such as Leonardo Padura Fuentes and Paco Ignacio Taibo II, as well as such English-language influences as G. K. Chesterton and Chester Himes, Braham also addresses Marxist critiques of the culture industry and emergent Latin American concepts of postmodernity.
