Whydunnits - Whodunnits: All even
I had thought that whydunnits were becoming more prevalent, but among this blog's readers, the balance is even.
Those who left comments however described books which synched with my own recent experience of knowing right from the start who committed the crime, and then being a spectator as the investigators came to the same understanding.
Books mentioned/recommended in the comments:
(not necessarily all whydunnits)
"The Suspect," by Canadian writer L.R. Wright
Ruth Rendell's THE BRIDESMAID
For the King by Catherine Delors
The Broken Shore by Peter Temple
Barbara Vine´s A Dark-Adapted Eye
The Darkest Room, by Johan Theorin
Jassy Mackenzie's Random Violence
Bad Boy by Peter Robinson
