10 More Mystery Story Ideas

Hi, everyone! That inspired me to write this list of prompts — and pieces of plots — for mystery stories. The basic mystery plot formula is pretty simple. Early on, a dead body turns up, a valuable item goes missing, or a puzzle begs to be solved. The reader knows that by the end of the book, questions will have been answered, which is a comforting element in even the most gruesome murder mysteries. The originality and charm, of course, is mostly in the execution.
