For the purpose of this group, the books we study must
1. be full-length novels (more than 50,000 words) or volumes of short stories featuring the same main characters.
2. feature a protagonist who is either a lesbian or bi-sexual female in a same-sex relationship.
3. fit into the Mystery genre; that is, the protagonist must either investigate a crime or solve a mystery.
4. offer the reader a glimpse into some facet of the lesbian lifestyle.
Authors can be either male or female, straight or gay. However, books written by lesbians that are not in the Mystery genre will not be allowed.
Likewise, books that are purported to be mysteries, but which deal primarily with Paranormal, Fantasy, Erotica, BSDM, Romance, or other sub-genres, will not be discussed. This includes the ubiquitous Thriller genre; most books whose protagonists work for the CIA, FBI, or other covert government agencies will not be included.
