The term "mystery fiction" may sometimes be limited to the subset of detective stories in which the emphasis is on the puzzle element and its logical solution (cf. whodunit), as a contrast to hardboiled detective stories which focus on action and gritty realism.

Edgar Allan Poe
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.

Derek Landy

Derek Landy, Skulduggery Pleasant
