    Detective fiction has held a vast swath of the reading public in its thrall for more than a century, and has few greater modern practitioners than PD James. In this succinct and elegant investigation, the doyenne of British crime writers traces its origins in the work of Dickens and Wilkie Collins, casts an expert eye over the creations of her predecessors and examines the challenges, achievements and potential of the genre.
