What happens to detective fiction when the detective is 'post-colonial,' a marginalized native or settler in a country recovering from colonialism? This introduction to the peculiarities of the post-colonial detective and to post-colonial theory establishes a context in which to view more than a dozen notable detectives and authors from around the world. The essays present post-colonial detection as an exciting hybrid of western-influenced police methods and plot conventions with indigenous cultural insights and wisdom in exotic settings.
