Definitions Regarding Types of Mysteries
Definitions and labels can help us match you with the type of mystery you are most likely to enjoy! We have included a small number of examples with each type of mystery we have outlined here, to give you a sense of what each style is like beyond the definition given.
Keep in mind that these definitions are shorthand labels that can be used as references for discussion. If you ask what a book is like and someone says "cozy", it gives you an idea of what to expect. Also, these styles can be mingled, so a suspense story might be cozy or a whodunnit could be hardboiled.
