What is your favorite mystery convention?
Is it red herrings? Stereotype detectives? Damsels in distress?
For me, it's the unreliable narrator. It doesn't matter who uses it, I fall for it every time. I love it.
And I just got took by it.
Even as the narrator was confronted and forced into honesty, I couldn't believe it. I was in complete denial until all of the facts were laid out, end to end, and I was forced to face the truth.
Even as it stared me in the face, I wondered, how in the heck did I get sucked in? It was subtle, with dribbles of hints that led me down a predetermined path.
It was a very enjoyable ride.
