Try reading "The black cat" by Edgar Allan Poe 😊 You can also apply the Single Effect Theory that he introduced to us.😊

Yes! But I like when there is a romance in those books, too. Really liked Nora Robert`s books about Eve.

Since I started reading with Nancy Drew, I've always loved mysteries. It's my favorite kind of thing. None of my children read them, while both like fantasy. That's because The Cuckoo's Calling sat on my shelf for one year and I haven't read that because I can't get into it every time I picked it up. So I can't comment on that, therefore I didn't hear about Secret Sanction.

Sometimes chapters alternate between the antagonist and the protagonist and less of a question / answer research type is established. Many puzzles are things like Eeny Meeny or Tuesday Drop all the way back.
Reading novels is my passion and I love to read fantasy novels at kisslightnovels

Detective stories are one of my favs. They keep you excited till the last page and bring you the feeling of being involved in the action.
The best memories from my childhood are connected with them too.

I like reading detective novels very much! Following the clues laid by the author to find out the answers has trained my thinking ability and reading ability.

Yes but when I have time I might usually read my textbook first then have no time to read detective novels but I really should read more cause I think it can make me think much more logically.

I like the story, even more of Poe's stories are quite creepy. But, not sure if you can call it "detective".

Myself, trying to finish "Sherlock Holmes" and his adventures. {-;

I love reading detective stories! I have read the Sherlock Holmes stories at least twice, and I'm sure that I'll read them again.

Well, there is also Hercule Poirot if you like Agatha Christie novels.

For some reason, and I can't put my finger on what it is, Hercule Poirot doesn't appeal to me. Lately I've been reading Kate Atkinson's series of Jackson Brody novels. Brody was in the military, then in the police force, and then a private investigator. Atkinson's detective novels are much more than that. She beautifully examines her charcters deeply so that we see all of them as unique, living, breathing individuals. I highly recommend her work--as well as her other novels, outside the Jackson Brody series. I also laugh myself silly over Janet Evanovich's Stefanie Plum novels. Plum is a bail bondsperson, so not actually a private detective, but she has to hunt down her reluctant "clients"--as an alternative to working in the button factory in her home town in New Jersey--and the scrapes she gets herself into are truly hilarious. I also highly recommend Anthony Horowitz's novels, in which he plays himself as a detective and biographer of a grumpy PI. Horowitz's books are often novels within novels, puzzles within puzzles, and you'll love the twists and turns that each book takes. Philipp Margolin also writes superb novels about a novice attorney who's often a sleuth. Oh, goodness, there are so many wonderful writers in this genre! These are just a few of my favorites. I love detective stories of all sorts.

Yes, this is probably my favorite genre to read, but there aren't many new good detectives coming out these days. Can anyone recommend any new ones?

The same for me. I love detective books, and my favourite author is James Hadley Chase. His books are very interesting
