We all love a good mystery don’t we? And by all, I mean each and every one of us are, or will be, captivated at one time or another by a decent, real-life, scary mystery; either one of the world’s most famous or something on a much smaller scale.
But, writing a book on just one of these would have been relatively easy. The challenge came from researching many of them and then condensing them down in a way that I know you, my reader, will enjoy them.
And that is in short, sharp informative sections that can be read on the train, bus, queue or whilst you are waiting to pick the kids up from school. In other words, the challenge was to explain each mystery in a way you can enjoy, and absorb, in about ten minutes flat.
But the missing detail isn’t critical to the basic story; the core details of the mystery in question should all be in there. In some cases, such as chapters on The Bermuda Triangle, UFO’s or USO’s there are literally thousands of examples that I could have used of course, but, in each case I have kept them down to just a handful.
