Synopsis

From Emma Peel with her ""kinky boots"" to Amanda King and her poppy seed cake, from Julie Barnes with her hippie pad to Honey West and her pet ocelot, TV's female spies and crimefighters leave an indelible impression, but there hasn't been a reference book devoted to them until now.This encyclopedic work covers TV's female spies, private investigators, amateur sleuths, police detectives, federal agents and crime-fighting superheroes, with an emphasis on lead or noteworthy characters. The entries include series credits and synopses, notable plot points, important or fun facts, and critical commentary on seminal series and characters. In addition to its A to Z coverage of the topic, the book provides a brief history of female spies and crimefighters on television, placing them in chronological perspective and sociological context.With 350 female spies and crimefighters who have appeared in over 250 television series since the 1950s, this comprehensive reference will appeal to TV fans and popular culture scholars alike.
