Hardboiled Detectives in Hammett, Chandler, and Parker

Though it has its roots in those mythological heroes who risked everything to bring the innocent safely out of the Underworld, the modern detective novel is a uniquely American invention.  Marilyn Fisher, Ph.D., whose presentations have always been among the most popular sessions at Killer Nashville, takes on the works of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Robert B. Parker and their influence on American detective writing.  Readers will enjoy hearing selected passages and learning about each writer’s style, while aspiring writers will learn skills about writing detective short stories and novels from these master writers.
