* The victim in the sci-fi murder mysterday ''Literature/TheNakedSun'', Dr. Rikaine Delmarre, is consistently praised by those who knew him as "a good Solarian" (Solaria being the planet on which the story is set). What the audience comes to realize is, while his devotion to civic duty was indeed above reproach, that's the only good thing anyone can think to say about him. In truth, [[WhoMurderedTheAsshole a lot of people actively hated him]].
