Mystery Net Community Writing Mysteries Elements of a Mystery
I have an idea for a short story. It will be the first mystery I've written, and only the second story. From what I have read on the subject, It seems to be unfair to "hold back" whodunnit once your PI has determined the culprit. Can't it be held back a little? I have 2 PI's, and I want a brief scene where one realizes who it is (but we aren't told), then another brief scene where the other one has the same revelation, then a phone conversatiion where they declare simultaneously who the culprit is. Is that going to be considered "unfair"?
