Awesome answer really clears this up for me. I have read that without red herrings every book written would be just a short story.Now this makes sense to me. Now I just need to learn to write red herrings, LOL
suzzy hope you noted what Mick said, the red herring is such a obvious build up that you wait for patrick to turn up with real culprit. so the minute the team picks someone up we know he is not the culprit.
Thanks for the great answers everyone. Now I want to learn to put some red herrings in my writing.
