Why I Don't Read Mystery Novels

"You've tricked and fooled your readers for years. You've tortured us all with surprise endings that made no sense. You've introduced characters in the last five pages that were never in the book before. You've withheld clues and information that made it impossible for us to guess who did it." 
                    --Lionel Twain, Murder by Death (1976)
