One of the most popular genres in the world is the mystery novel. Readers who enjoy mysteries are frequently drawn to them because the tale piques their interest. They prefer being in the thick of things. They enjoy delving into characters’ psychological makeup and motivational drives.

The mystery genre is a subgenre of fiction that follows a crime (such as a murder or a disappearance) from its inception to its conclusion. Mystery books are commonly referred to as “whodunnits” because they transform the reader into a detective who must find out who, what, when, and how a crime occurred. It consists of five simple yet crucial components. The characters, the setting, the narrative, the problem, and the solution are the five components.

The modern detective story as we know it was invented by Edgar Allan Poe in the mid-19th century through his short story, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, which featured arguably the world’s first fictional detective, C. Auguste Dupin. Authors like Agatha Christie, G.K. Chesterton, and Mary Roberts Rinehart rose to prominence during the Golden Age of the murder mystery genre.
