The Mystery Genre
Mystery or crime fiction is one of the best-selling genres around the world. Whether a cozy mystery with an amateur sleuth or a police procedural, crime fiction is paradoxically a very comforting genre to read. By the end of the novel, the mystery is solved and the villain is caught. It can be very cathartic when real life is often much messier.
Looking for clues on what to read? Inspect these ebooks:
- The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle is a foundational book in detective fiction.
- A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson–What happens when a high school student decides to re-investigate a closed murder-suicide case in her hometown? Obviously, that won’t sit well with the real murderer.
- Murder House by James Patterson will make you glad you don’t have that beach house after all.
- Murder, She Wrote: A Manuscript by Jessica Fletcher and Jon Land because 12 seasons of Jessica Fletcher was not enough.
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens is immensely popular and crosses multiple genres, including murder mystery.
