 MARCIA’S FIVE FAVORITE FEMALE CRIME FIGHTERS….

Emma
Peel (aka Diana Rigg) of “The
Avengers”
: Before it was cool to let women fight and carry guns, this
woman did it all, and in a black cat suit no less.

Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison in “Prime Supect”:
Jane is brilliant, tough, straight-talking; a woman who walked the walk without
ever resorting to the cartoonish extremes of either trying to be a man or the
outrageous coquette. And Helen
Mirren is literally the only person who could play her.

Rita Fiore: The hottest female lawyer on two spectacular
legs (thanks, Robert B. Parker!). She was Spencer’s
“go-to” gal for all kinds of help and information. Every bit as predatory, tough
and smart as any man, she and Spencer shared a perpetual, yet unrequited
lust.

Scully of the “X Files”: Cool as a cucumber, the rational,
scientifically-minded counter-part to Mulder. Scully was a woman who could run
without pin wheeling arms and wield a gun with believable authority. And, for a
change, a woman was the logical, more emotionally balanced end of the team.

Nancy Drew: one of the
earliest intrepid females and the heroine of my early childhood. In fact, she’s
one of the reasons I wanted to be a thriller writer. At eighty years old (yep,
eighty) she’s still out there crushing crime.
