This is exactly how detective fiction authors draw people into these stories and books. By weaving an intricate and interesting plot full of fascinating characters, and all types of details about the crime, readers get drawn into the plot and cannot stop reading until they find out the solution to the mystery. Simply put, readers are drawn to detective fiction because it is so easy to become completely engrossed in the stories. The trick of the author is how to create such an environment to keep readers coming back again and again to the genre. The easiest way to begin to draw any reader into a story is through the characters.
Capote made use of many literary techniques in order to grab the interest of his readers. He wanted his novel to be more than just a newspaper description of the crime. Finally, In Cold Blood was a great success because it told a true story in an interesting way. Capote overcame a big milestone by discovering a way to write a nonfiction novel, which appealed to everyone. First, Capote knew that he was creating a new art form when he wrote his greatest work, In Cold Blood.
Themes are what drive a novel to completion and influence the author to write the story. Themes are the main and central idea of the novel and usually can be picked up on quickly. In Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Doyle expresses his themes in numerous ways, some of which are subtle, while others are more obvious. The themes in the novel include science versus superstition, appearance versus reality, and trust and betrayal. In Doyle’s time, forensics and criminology sciences were on the rise, proving many myths at the time false.
Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories can be considered a model for detective fiction because each is centered on a mystery, Sherlock is a brilliant detective, and clues are a prerequisite for success. The very essence of any detective story is the mystery. Unlike murder mysteries, which have a lot in common with detective stories, Holmes's problems are not invariably as severe as homicide. These mysteries are not usually insignificant though, and "Often they have to do with theft or murder" (Adventures). The first mystery may be an important and confusing conundrum, but there is often a more worthy case that presents itself after the first has commenced.
