There are so many definitions on what is what and what is supposed to be, but since you are the experts, IMP would like you to tell us your definition of a great mystery.

And don't hold back , tell us what you really think. After all, we did ask.

This is just me but, a great mystery is liking a character enough to be able to slog through a book's worth of trouble for him/her.

It's getting the details right so you don't fall out of belief.

It's feeling an emotional pang about his/her level of commitment and sacrifice.

It's a scenario where the danger is equal to the situation.

And finally, for me, it's the interesting turn of phrase, a sentence that you wish you'd written.
