How to Write Mysteries

by Shannon OCork

This slim volume is apparently out of print; Amazon only lists used booksellers as sources - which means you can get it at a bargain.

Aimed at the beginning mystery writer (me?), OCork does a good job of helping you identify a plot and make the distinction between a plot and a situation.

She also helps you develop a series character... which is great. And she's got a decent section on marketing - a bit dated, the the basics are there.

Of course, you've still got to write the damn thing! But if mystery writing is your goal, this book is worth a shot.
