Yes, I love detective stories. I love to live vicariously through the detectives in the stories I read. I think I may have missed my calling.

I always love detective stories. I grew up reading Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and Sherlock Holmes since I was in highschool, borrowing books from the library. :)

I grew up reading Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys books. Now I am drawn to Kinsey Millhone and Stephanie Plum, as well as other detectives and private investigators that come in series such as Spencer and Philip Marlowe.

Why are you all just saying you love detective stories? At least give some details. Otherwise the whole world loves the same thing.

I enjoy detectives stories! I love mystery and suspence. I'm especially fond of psychological thriller with some detective elements. I live for the thrill of menally deducting my own conclusions while the characters try to unravel a case. It's so satisfying when my deductive skills prove accurate. But then again the downside of that is that sometimes when it does, it's because the novel was predictable.
