Left me wanting more

The author narrated and he did a great job with that. The rules themselves, which were the titles of each section, were good and useful but The author’s explanations don’t really provide enough information in each section to be able to apply the rule in a technical way and often he goes on tangents which steer off the path of the main message. My bigger concern however is that based on the title of the book “rules to follow when writing a suspense mystery” I expected it to be in all genres of suspense or mystery. Instead it was focused on crime novel writing only and at times the author referred to the title as being about writing a crime mystery. Makes me wonder if they changed the audible title to appeal to more audiences. Also more than half of the author’s points are based on movies not novels. That doesn’t always apply to writing.
