Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense

A mystery is a genre that focuses on a puzzling crime, situation, or circumstance that needs to be solved. The word mystery comes from the Latin mysterium, which means "a secret thing." Mystery novels can be fiction or non-fiction and can include supernatural elements or non-supernatural elements. Many mysteries revolve around uncovering a culprit or criminal.

A thriller is a genre that seeks to induce strong feelings of excitement, tension, anxiety, fear, suspense, and other similar emotions in its readers. There are many thrillers, but the top styles are psychological thriller, crime thriller, and mystery thriller.

A book in the suspense genre will have elements that stimulate pleasurable fascination and excitement mixed with apprehension. A suspense novel works to develop an unpredictable mystery that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. It keeps the reader engaged and wanting to find out what happens next.
