A lot of the Mysteries I'm seeing recommended are more mid-grade and  might
skew too young for a 17 year old. Below are some good mysteries for Teens
that I recommend on a regular basis.

   -  Jackaby Series by William Ritter- supernatural mystery (sort of
   sherlock-esque but with ghosts and monsters)
   -  Chasing Jack the Ripper by Carrie Maniscalco- historical mystery
   (there are sequels)
   - Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson (trilogy)- modern day, easy read set
   at a boarding school where a unsolved murder happened years ago and a new
   murder occurs and they might all be connected.
   - One of Us is Lying by Karen M.McManus (and sequel One of us is next)-
   A boy dies during detention and the 4 other kids in detention with him are
   suspects, all with motive and secrets. NYT best-seller and very popular.
   - I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga  (first in a series)- Main character's
   Dad is a convicted serial killer. In order to prove it's not a familiar
   trait he helps police try to solve new murders with his insight into
   killers from living with one for years.
