    The essential handbook for writers of whodunits, techno- thrillers, cozies, and everything in between-featuring
    never-before- published personal writing exercises from some of today's bestselling and award-winning mystery writers.
    Now Write! Mysteries, the fourth volume in the acclaimed Now Write! writing guide series, brings together numerous
    bestselling authors-including winners of and nominees for the Edgar, Hugo, and Shamus awards,-for the definitive guide
    to writing mysteries, thrillers, and suspense stories. Now Write! Mysteries teaches you everything you've ever wanted to
    know about crafting a page-turning mystery-from creating a believable detective hero (or terrifying villain), to using
    real-life cutting-edge investigative techniques to bring your story to life-with practical exercises taken directly from
    the pros:

    * Discover the best techniques for seamlessly integrating action into your story with John Lutz, New York
    Times-bestselling author of Urge to Kill, Night Kills, and Serial.

    * Learn how to fine-tune your sense of place and setting with Louise Penny, New York Times-bestselling author of the
    Armand Gamache mysteries.

    * Take advice from Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers and writer/producer for Law & Order, on how to compose a scene
    that lives up to your character's backstory.

    * Let Marcia Talley, Agatha- and Anthony-winning author of the Hannah Ives mysteries, show you how to build a memorable,
    engaging detective. (Hint: It's not about making him flawless.)
    Others included are: Simon Brett, Hallie Ephron, Meg Gardiner, Peter James, Christopher G. Moore, Michael Sears, and
    many others. No other mystery-writing guide offers the road tested wisdom of so many award-winners and bestselling
    authors in one place.
