Why do we read mysteries? I think one reason is to solve the same type of mind puzzle. A fictional character gets killed or threatened bodily harm. The reader is sent on a search with the object being where to assign blame. It's a great guessing game to see if speculations are correct.
In the case of thrillers, readers sometimes even know the bad guy, but still are on pins and needles wondering if the hero or heroine will figure it out in time before more dire happenings occur.
Someone is Always to Blame.
In most mysteries, we learn the answer. In others, such as my cold case, we'll never know.
