Current research

My research interests include gender and crime, crime reporting, and the history of private detection 

Private detectives

My last book looked at the history of female private detectives in Britain. I am currently extending this work by researching the history of private detectives in Britain over the course of the 19th and early 20th centuries. This work is being explored in my substack newsletter, Secret Sleuths, and will be the subject of my next book.
