The best mystery I read was Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz for many reasons. First, I thought it was very action packed. I like action mystery spy novels. Then, I thought that the mystery was good because it was difficult to tell what the villain's ultimate goal was. That made the story quite intriguing . In other mysteries you know what the crime was but they solve for the villain. In this one you know the villain but you don’t know the crime. Finally, I like the epic-ness in the series that makes the story awesome. Those are a few reasons I like Stormbreaker as my favorite mystery.
Now I shall write a beginning to a mystery.
It was a warm sunny day in Brooklyn. Andrew was walking down the sidewalk and a man walked hurriedly past him. Andrew studied the bloody footprints the man left behind him. The footprints trailed into a dark alley 2 blocks away . There the footprints led into a pool of blood. Andrew looked up and saw a body leaning over the fire escape dripping blood forming a big, bloody puddle. Andrew also saw a bloody baton lying to the side of the pool of the hideously red liquid. Suddenly, Andrew recalled seeing blood on the man’s hands. Andrew quickly knew what to do. He ran back home to ...??? Thus the mystery begins.
