Framed makes use of fin de siècle British crime narrative to pose a hugely fascinating query: why do woman legal characters are typically captivating and beautiful whereas fictional male criminals of the period are unsympathetic or maybe grotesque?

Her e-book bargains an awfully very important new approach to take into consideration the altering form of political tradition on the flip of the century."
