#MSWL! Mysteries and thrillers, especially set in the American south, especially written by and about folks with marginalized identities

n.b. at this point I have a VERY low tolerance for hard-drinking divorced police detectives grimly inspecting women's naked corpses.

If I could manifest ONE book onto my desk, it'd be a thoughtful look at issues of race and class in the American South...wrapped up in a domestic noir or Tana French-y mystery. A tall order, I know! But one of y'all has to be writing it, right? #MSWL

Dysfunctional families, but not, like, "August: Osage County" dysfunctional, just garden-variety dysfunctional #MSWL
