November 2020 - Mystery/whodunit Books Help

Post by gali »

Mystery: "usually involves a mysterious death or a crime to be solved. Often within a closed circle of suspects, each suspect is usually provided with a credible motive and a reasonable opportunity for committing the crime. Mystery fiction can also involve a supernatural mystery in which the solution does not have to be logical and even in which there is no crime involved."

whodunit: is a "complex, plot-driven variety of a detective story in which the puzzle regarding who committed the crime is the main focus. The reader or viewer is provided with the clues from which the identity of the perpetrator may be deduced before the story provides the revelation itself at its climax. The investigation is usually conducted by an eccentric, amateur, or semi-professional detective".

I will read The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton. I loved his first book, The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle.
