    Edited by Dian Hanson.

    Introducing the Golden Age of bad girls - gun-toting femme fatales caught in the action! Follow the evolution and devolution of this distinctly American genre from 1924 to 1969. Hundreds of covers and interior images from dozens of magazine titles tell the story, not just of the "detectives," but also of America's attitudes towards sex, sin, crime, and punishment over five decades.

    With text by magazine collector Eric Godtland, George Hagenaur, and True Detective editor Marc Gerald, True Crime Detective Magazines is an informative and entertaining look at one of the strangest publishing niches of all time.

    Hardcover, 9-in.x 11-in., 336 pages, full color.

    Cover price $39.99.
