Thrill or Angst? Metaphysical Implications of Rewriting the Detective Plot in Joyce Carol Oates's "The Falls"

Abstract : A growing number of Joyce Carol Oates's novels are a peculiar sort of "whydunit." In Oates's The Falls (2004), her detectives occupy a middle ground between the Golden Age detective and the hard-boiled hero - one example of the metaphysical detective story in her fiction that resists even this wide-ranging designation.
