dc.description.abstractCrime fiction offers various pleasures but rarely those of innovation, and that is the case with these three very different books from three veterans of the genre — familiar pleasures. "Degrees of Connection" is a police procedural featuring a series character; "Earthly Delights" is an amateur sleuth cosy in which Greenwood breaks away from her series character, Phryne Fisher; and "Blindside" is a hardboiled who’s-got-the-loot thriller in which the police and the criminals are morally indistinguishable and largely interchangeable. Each solves some crime problems, of course; each devotes considerable time and energy to documenting their home city: Sydney, Melbourne and environs. And each uses films and film viewing as a lingua franca, a cultural currency exchanged among its characters (and readers).en
