    Cozy Mysteries are a sub-genre of crime fiction featuring a lack of violence, gratuitous sex, and profanity. The murder generally takes place 'off-stage' and lack heavy descriptions of blood and gore, and any sexual activity is generally only implied. The protagonists can be found in any walk of life, ranging from inn-keepers, to monks, to professors, to ghosts, and anywhere in between. They almost always take place in a benign, genteel setting, where violence and crime are decidedly unexpected.
