The Whodunit:  Killer Bytes by Alan Williams
Locked Room Mystery: The Lifeboat by  Charlotte Rogan
Cozy: The nice person’s mystery. Often the crime, particularly if it’s violent, occurs off scene. Sex and language are on the cleaner side. Humor is a common feature of the cozy.
Hard-Boiled/Noir: Darkroom by Joshua Graham
The Inverted Detective Story: Cross Fire by James Patterson
The Historical Whodunnit: Simply put, this is a mystery set in a historical setting. Often the mystery has some historical significance and features detection methods that are appropriate for that era.
The Police Procedural: The Lost Years by Mary Higgins Clark
The Professional Thriller:  Lovesick by Spencer Seidel
The Spy Novel: Gods and Fathers by James LePore
Caper Stories: Love Thy Neighbor by Mark Gilleo
The Psychological Suspense: The Good Father by Noah Hawley
Spoofs and Parodies: Spoofs and parodies make light of crime fiction, often with the goal of commenting on the conventions of the genre. Many feature famous characters, e.g. Sherlock Holmes, James Bond, Philip Marlowe, or pastiches of those characters
