"It is clearly written and considers texts over a wide historical range."

"Gladfelder carries through his project in a series of incisive against-the-grain readings."

"An essential analysis of the criminal narratives that became part of the 18th-century English reader's experiences and their influence upon the novels that we continue to read."

"Smart, thorough, and provocative... A unique and valuable contribution to the studies of crime literature and the eighteenth-century novel. "

"This is a fresh and stimulating, often original, deeply intelligent, and almost completely persuasive study."

"Gladfelder has done an excellent job of scholarship. This book will make a mark as one of the most complete books on the relation between criminality and the novel. It is also a very good re-reading of the standard works in the field."
