J.R. Christopher, Choice, 2001 'The Noir Thriller! marks another title in Palgrave's "Crime Files" series, whose editorial philosophy!is to offer "scholars, students and discerning readers a comprehensive set of guides to the world of crime and detective fiction", a philosophy Lee Horsley admirably meets with her readable, serious (though sometimes humorous) journey through noir streets and landscapes more varied than critics recognize.' - Anthony Bukoski, Studies in the Novel, 2002 'In constructing her constantly original argument, Lee Horsley rams unstoppably through many hundreds of books and a good range of films; astonishingly, either by their positioning in her well-conceived categories or through more detailed analysis, she implies a fresh, carefully nuanced reading of each.-
This study of the twentieth-century thriller in all of its darker manifestations is from now on indispensable.' - Martin Priestman, International Fiction Review, 2006 'It's a pleasure to follow her journey from Joseph Conrad to James Ellroy, from Black Mask magazine to William Gibson...Very inspiring is [her] attention to the links between literature and film throughout the book...recommended as a handbook for anyone with a deeper interest in classic as well as modern crime fiction.-
Audiences of noir and neo-noir cinema are sure to find in it their favourite genre's sources of inspiration.' - Marcus Stiglegger, Gutenberg-University, Mainz Germany, Paradoxa 'A welcome scholarly project...The Noir Thriller will stand for the foreseeable future as the one-volume scholarly handbook to the hardboiled/bleak/violent end of crime fiction...The range and depth of her scholarship is impressive - not only does she know about more crime novels than anyone I know of, she knows more about what's been written about them.' - Crime Factory, The Australian Crime Fiction Magazine.
