Detective: Solve the Crime

Is there some kind of crime that has been committed in the story you want to retell...? A theft? A murder? Perhaps a missing person? You can switch the plot around by introducing a detective character who discovers the clues one by one and attempts to solve the mystery. You can use a famous detective like Sherlock Holmes, or you can create a detective of your own inside the fictional world that you are writing about.

For some ideas, take a look at some of these Storybook projects that use the detective style:

Law and Order: The Shape Shifters UnitMeet the shape-shifters — Hanuman, Indra, Maricha — whose tireless efforts in defense of law and order now keep the city of Ayodhya safe.

Tokyo Underworld. Orimi works for the Urban Legend Department of the Tokyo police force, and she has a gruesome murder to solve. You'll have to pay close attention while she interrogates Teke-Teke, Tanuki, Kuchisake-Onna, Jinmenken, and The Professor if you want to find the murderer!

Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Missing River. Sherlock Holmes and his faithful companion Dr. Watson have come to India for some rest and relaxation, but when they find a murdered woman in their rented room, they have no choice but to pursue the mystery.

Fairytale Case Files. From light-hearted tales of elves to the brutal baking of a witch in her own oven, Wolfgang Forrester is on the case! Plus, there's a sequel: Wolfgang goes to India.
