Whodunnit is a word coined in the 1930s from the words Who done it?
That is, who committed the crime?
The crime is usually a murder.
A murder is the unlawful killing of another person.
A Whodunnit is a complex detective story in which the audience tries to guess who did the crime before the answer is revealed at the end.
I’m sure you have watched some of the many TV shows based on the whodunnit.
You may also have enjoyed whodunnit novels such as those from Agatha Christie.
I felt the whodunnit genre could be an interesting way of helping students improve their English.
All I needed was a way to allow students to question the suspects in a realistic way.
Once I found what I needed, my English Mystery series was born.
My first English Mystery, A Deadly Lesson, is ready to be solved.
