I enjoy mystery stories.

A well-written novel captures my interest quickly and sustains it until the last page.

Poorly written novels make me skip boring parts and scoff at factual errors.

Good writing is a thing of beauty. The Suspense is Killing Me is devoted discovering good writing in the mystery and suspense genre.

There are enough good books on shelves to keep readers engaged for a lifetime. Don’t waste your reading time on flat characters, tired plots and bland settings. If a novel doesn’t grab your interest in the fist dozen pages, move on to one that does.
