I'm being libelled!

Except, of course, I'm dead, and you can't libel the dead.

It's so unfair, being killed off by the murderer.

Would you rather be killed by an innocent bystander?

When the reader is given all the clues and knows every relevant fact that the detective (or the main character) knows

Ah, but then the solution to the mystery would be too easy wouldn't it?

No it wouldn't. The reader must himself/herself sort out the clues, interprit them and find out what they mean, and weigh them against each other.

The reader shall not be given the solution, but must be given all the clues and all the facts that the detective knows, so the detective and the reader can consider the case on equal terms. Only then is it fair play.

So can we take it for granted that the murderer is among the 14 moderators listed in post 2?

And: after a roasted chicken and a fading mouse - will we see a squashed or headless Dalek now?

Hmm.
Pilot bob- death by fall
Poohbear nc- death by microwave?
Dr. Drib- burned to death/bludgeoned
HarryT- death by bookcase
Pdurrant- death by drowning
It's becoming quite apparent that it's rather dangerous standing around here at the present.

The answer is going to reveal itself if the death rate continues at this pace. Last man standing will be whodunnit. Unless Agatha is doing a "10 Little Indians" on us...?
