James McGowan @jmcgowanbksI missed participating in the @bookendslit #MSWL Day round up due to meetings, but behold my #MSWL anyway... (1/5)
James is seeking upmarket/book club fiction, mystery, suspense and thrillers. Some things he is drawn to in a novel are commercial, high-concept plots, exciting settings, fast pacing, a fresh spin on a familiar trope, grounded speculative elements, rich prose (2/5) #MSWL

James McGowan @jamerrsonIt's #MSWL day, and I don't make the rules, so here I go.
Adult #Mystery, #Thriller, #Suspense-- I love my dark mysteries and thrillers along the lines of Tana French. I will never do a #MSWL without Tana French's name. Ever. I've read a ton of Ruth Ware this year, and loved it all.
In Mystery, Tana French is my favorite. I’d love mysteries with writing elevated to her level, but really I’m looking for ANYTHING in mystery. From procedurals to regular old mysteries, psychological thrillers. Suspense like Susan Furlong!(Excluding spy books, please). #MSWL
James McGowan @jamerrsonI also love speculative elements that run the gamut from DRY to STRANGER THINGS. Ultimately, I like stories grounded in our reality, no matter a spec element. #MSWL
I’m dying (heh) to find a thriller author like BookEnds’ very own Amanda Searcy or Karen McManus. Twisty and dark. Bonus points for something as unputdownable as Watch You Burn’s fire obsessed Jenny! #MSWL
