Buy this book...a lot of fun."--The Thrilling Detective Web Site

Emma Peel wearing her "kinky boots." Amanda King and her poppy seed cake. Julie Barnes at her hippie pad. Honey West with her pet ocelot. Television's female spies and crimefighters make quite an impression, yet there hasn't been a reference book devoted to them until now. This encyclopedic work covers 350 female spies, private investigators, amateur sleuths, police detectives, federal agents and crime-fighting superheroes who have appeared in more than 250 series since the 1950s, with an emphasis on lead or noteworthy characters. Entries are alphabetical by series, featuring credits and synopses, notable plot points, interesting facts and critical commentary on seminal series and characters. A brief history of female spies and crimefighters on TV places them in chronological perspective and sociological context.
