I'm a huge mystery fan, be it book, television, movies, games, etc. I thought it might be nice to have a thread discussing the mystery genre... maybe we can give each other ideas ^_^
myself, I'm currently reading through everything that Agatha Christie ever wrote (In order) I just finished "the mysterious mr. quinn" which is a collection of short stories she wrote about a mysterious man (Harley Quinn) who shows up whenever old Mr. satterthwaite (The protagonist) encounters a mystery, he particularly loves to tangle in the affairs of lovers. It's uncertain wether he's a real person, or a fantasm, or maybe even a part of mr. satterthwaite himself, all thats certain is that he brings out the best in mr. satterthwaite and helps him to solve mysteries, I must add that my favorite quote of all time came from this book...
Listen. I will put a case to you. A man comes to a certain place--to commit suicide, shall we say? But by chance he finds another man there, so he fails in his purpose and goes away-- to live. The second man has saved the first man's life, not by being necissary to him or prominent in his life but just by the mere physical fact of having been in a certain place at a certain moment. You take your life today and perhaps, some five, six, seven years hence, someone will go to death or disaster simply for lack of your presence in a given spot or place. It may be a runaway horse coming down a street that swerved aside at sight of you and so fails to trample a child that is playing in the gutter. That child may live to grow up and be a great musician, or discover a cure for cancer. or it may be less melodramatic then that. He may just grow up to ordinary everyday happiness.-----You say your life is your own, but can you ignore the chance that you are taking part in a gigantic drama under the orders of a divine producer? Your cue may not come till the end of the play--it may be totally uninportant, a mere walking on part, but on it may hang the issues of the play, if you do not give the cue to another player. The whole edifice may crumple. You as you, may not matter to anyone in the world, but you as a person in a particular place may matter unimaginably~~~~ Agatha Christie
I'm also currently watching through the entire Murder She Wrote series on netflix
