This month: Mystery
In a mystery, the main plot focuses on the discovery of the guilty party, almost always in a murder case. The solution to a mystery has to see justice served, although storylines, sub-plots, and settings can include elements from other genres. Sub-genres for mysteries include cozies, historical mysteries, and noir.
