Mystery Fiction

What is a mystery novel, exactly? In general, mysteries are stories in which a detective investigates and solves a crime. Mystery novels can run the gamut from puzzle solving whodunits, to supernatural mysteries, to more realistic and gritty action-oriented books, often referred to as hard-boiled detective stories. Mysteries are also often referred to as crime scene fiction. There is a mystery to suit every taste!
