Description In my contribution, I have examined the George McKenzie series (2015-2018) written by the British female author Marnie Riches. I have argued that despite the fact that the series is often promoted as a feminist take on crime thriller, it highlights the positive traits of the female protagonist by degrading the female supporting characters, and as such in fact adds to the persisting oversimplification of women in crime fiction.
