  2. Mystery • Mystery stories are fiction stories in which a detective solves a crime or a series of crimes. • The detective character in a mystery may be a private investigator, a police officer, an elderly man or woman, an animal such as a cat or dog, or a young girl or boy. • The detective usually does not get paid for solving the crime. He or she just does it for enjoyment.
