Murder Mystery Cliches
What are the commonest cliches of the murder mystery genre? Either, flim, TV or book? Either in character, plot, etc
For example, there's frequently a showdown in the Living Room where the detective gathers all the suspects to reveal the true identity of the murderer. I often thought if the murderer knew the game was nearly up why didn't they get busy making a good escape instead of toddling along to the living room to be named and shamed!
Does anyone else have any other observations? Is there anywhere on the net I could get a list?
