Detective short stories form a sub-genre of crime fiction; they primarily focus on an investigator of some kind trying to solve a crime, frequently murder, although some feature a significant theft or kidnapping, among others. The investigator may be a detective, a private eye or an amateur. In some cases the mystery is a “whodunit” and discovering the perpetrator is the driving force of the short story. In other cases the culprit is known and the method of their discovery is the key element. Our detective short stories may also overlap with the modern day police procedural story.
