"A Duty to Care": Denise Mina's Garnethill Series
Clues: A Journal of Detection
Social institutions like the medical professions and the police should protect women, but Denise Mina’s Garnethill trilogy demonstrates how such structures actually victimize them. Mina uses private investigations by Maureen O’Donnell to explore more widely applicable strategies of resistance to violence in both the home and society at large.
