Reading Mysteries

Did you ever start a book
and read halfway through
to where you guess who
the writer selected as the culprit?

You know about extenuating circumstances.
Perhaps the writer took an easy path.
Perhaps stereotypes swayed her judgement.
Perhaps she ran out of words.
Perhaps she didn't want to open windows.

Maybe she'll change her mind.
Perhaps this is a red herring,
a ploy to keep me reading.
