Best Answer

Mysteries are called mysteries because they involve solving puzzles or uncovering hidden truths. The term "mystery" implies something that is unknown and requires investigation or exploration to reveal its secrets. In the context of literature, mysteries are typically stories where a crime or enigma must be solved by the protagonist and the reader.
