This has happened to me several times: I read the description of a book labeled "mystery", it sounds interesting or entertaining. I buy it and start listening. Before long I realize this is not a traditional mystery solved by dogged investigation of real-world evidence, gathered, organized, and analyzed by sharp minds. Rather it is a new category of mystery that doesn't rely on facts and hard evidence at all, but on interventions from another extrasensory world. That's fine for those who enjoy such stories, but I don't appreciate not being given fair warning so I can look elsewhere. Maybe people writing book descriptions view the occult as just a plot twist any reader would enjoy?
Please, publishers, make your descriptions clear when mediums, ghosts, psychics, stances, ESP, witchcraft, etc. play a part in a story. For may of us, this is a matter of faith, not literary taste.
