One of my favorite ways to spend a quite evening at home is with a good murder mystery movie. Nothing draws me in and makes me forget about the world outside like a good Whodunnit. A really good one will twist and turn the plot so effectively that it’s nearly impossible to figure out who the culprit is. A good mystery is a great way to exercise your skills of deduction and investigation. There are some really great classics mysteries that I’ll never get tired of, but every once in a while I discover a new one. Here are a few of my favorites old and new.
