How to develop a mystery?
 
Hello, I'm new to mystery.net. I'm an "aspiring" writer, have written a couple of pulp-fiction-type books, but would really like to write a straightforward, country house mystery. I don't have trouble with characters and settings but I need help with the mystery itself. Does anyone have any suggestions re: how to develop a mystery? How does one come up with the puzzle, the solution? Thanks so much.
