This article is better than my own ruminations on the subject, because I developed the ability to run them more as an art rather than as a skill; i.e., I never really consciously thought too much about how what I did worked. This article spells it out in greater detail than I could, because it talks about things that I did more subconsciously rather than consciously, and it develops steps for success that I didn't always necessarily think of. Although I've had a good time running and playing mysteries in the past, and feel like it's something that I'm capable of well enough, this article even gives me a bunch of great pointers that I can apply to make my mystery scenarios even better.
Due to the choice of source material that I choose to emulate, I actually am much more likely to run this types of thing than any other type of scenario, actually.
