    From 'cold-blooded killers and hot penny bloods', crime fighters, private investigators and the mean streets of crime noir to cold war spies, Peter Haining traces the evolution of every element of crime fiction and tells the stories of the authors of the fiendish plots, the fictional detectives who became household names, and the artists who created the often lurid covers of crime novels and magazines between the 1920s and 1950s.
