Mystery Writers

Many of the older TV shows had fabulous mystery writers. It wasn’t always easy to determine who was the guilty party.  For example, I was watching an old “Perry Mason” recently.  One of the best features of the show is the cars.  They were fabulous and great to see again.  I loved this show when I was young. One of the recent shows I had watched involved a blackmailer.  A man had discovered he could easily destroy several people with information he had found.  Obviously, he was the one who had to go.  What was interesting was that the real culprit was a surprise.  Obviously, he chose a young college graduate who had only recently moved back to the town.  He didn’t know until the blackmailer entered his life that his father had been convicted of murder eighteen years prior to this.  Once he found out, he was not pleased.  His mother had hid the information from him his entire life.  Of course, he had a degree in chemistry and the blackmailer died from chemical poisoning.  The trial was interesting but not until the very end was the true criminal actually revealed.  Perry, of course, figured it out with much research by Paul Drake.  This amazed me as the person who committed the act was a character but not anyone you would expect.  It turned out that the first man who passed was actually killed by his wife who also wiped out the blackmailer.  She framed both the college student and his father.  That was good writing on the part of the mystery writers.  Many of the current shows are too obvious and don’t utilize your mind to guess the answer.  The stories that bring a character after the fact, to me, are not as appealing.  Also, the ones that make the plot so complicated that you began to lose track of the actual story which I think makes people lose interest. Do you like the mystery writers that keep you guessing but the plots are not extremely complicated? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
