Who invented the genre of mystery?

Crime fiction or the mystery, invented by Poe in 1841 with a story set in Paris (The Murder in the Rue Morgue) rapidly became a remarkably popular literary genre dominated by American and British writers and, to a lesser extent, French authors.

What is the difference between a thriller and a mystery novel?

In a thriller, "who done it" is usually known to the reader, and often times to the main character. The goal is not to solve a mystery, but rather to catch a criminal, or stop a crime from being committed. A thriller is a mystery that de-emphasizes cerebration, and emphasizes action and suspense.

What is a mystery writing?

Mysteries have three kinds of clues. “Genuine clues” point to the killer and help the detective solve the crime. “Fake clues,” (also called “red herrings”) point to someone other than the killer. They serve to distract the reader (and, often, the detective too).
