A lot of this book was skimmable for me, but I found parts really helpful. Roerden enlivens the dry material with an entertaining style and chooses great examples from published novels. A word of warning: the book isn't much about 'How to Write a Mystery'. It's about 'How to Write'. It's clearly geared toward genre writers, but I expected it to focus on that a bit more.
