I love the idea that the personality quirks of the main character are the spice of a book! Travis McGee's living on a boat, and his wacky friend Meyer, made him seem exotic and real when I was a kid...


Wacky friends are another great way to add spice to a mystery. And the nice thing about secondary characters is that the author can decide how little or how much to put them in the book, since sometimes, a little spice goes a long way.
