        A domestic mystery includes mysteries involving a cat or dog (or any animal, really) where they more or less aid their owner in solving the crime. These can also include book club settings, bakeries, and the like. Hardboiled. Hardboiled is what it sounds like. It’s a hardcore mystery where violence and gruesome details are involved.
