Welcome to Opening a Mystery.

My name is Tim Suddeth. I have written stand alone mystery/suspense as well as a series of mystery with a female heroine set in Charleston, SC. Mysteries have been some of my favorite books my whole life.

I enjoy learning about old classics and lesser known writers from previous times. I, also, enjoy discovering new writers who are just introducing us to new characters.

This site is for fellow mystery lovers, writers and readers.  We will explore the different types of mysteries, meet new authors, and learn about new and old books. I’m excited to learn more about this world that includes Sam Spade, Agatha Christie, Nero Wolfe, Stephanie Plum, and who knows who else we will meet. 

I’m glad to have you join me. Just don’t look in the basement.
