Got interested in Mystery non-fiction.
After watching some documentaries, I got interested in True mysteries around the world. What are some mystery non-fiction books I can read?

I think it depends on the genre of "mystery" you are referring to.
If you are interested in Archaeology you can check Graham Hancock books.
In this genre it's not so easy to understand what is reliable. When I read "Fingerprints of the Gods" I really liked it but I don't know if those kind of theories are scientifically accepted.

James Ellroy has a number of books - based on real crimes - such as The Black Dahlia.

There are loads of this type of book, usually associated with specific events or individuals. My advice would be to pick one of these and reasearch for books on this subject - there will be sensationalist rubbish yes, but generally there are a few well thought out books on most stories.
