Have you ever noticed how crime novels have a very high number of female victims? The interesting part of this fact is that a large percentage of the readers of such novels are female themselves. Why do you think that is?
A while back I found an article written by one of my favourite authors, Tess Gerritsen, in which she takes a swing at why she believes that is. I have read all of Gerrtisen’s books from both the medical thriller and mystery/thriller series, but at the time the thought of questioning why the victims are very often female never hit me.
I wont say any more, but I will send you her essay about the subject and let you make up your own mind- why do you think it is?
