I love dark crime thrillers, literary horror, suspense, complex espionage tales, genre mash-ups, whether they feature female or male protagonists.

Crime and thriller: Send me truly unputdownable books with twists that you really don’t see coming or mysteries that get the cogs of your brain turning, like True Crime Story or The Appeal. (Not police procedural though please). 🦹‍♀️

Books with really strong settings regardless of genre are a must for me!

Whether its a romcom somewhere gorgeous, a crime novel where the setting is a direct external threat, or just a chance to experience somewhere I've never been before... I love armchair travel! #mswl

I’d love to see more crime/detective queries. I’m a big fan of Silent Witness, Vera, Shetland, and Broadchurch! Anything like that would be amazing 🤩 #mswl

Just updated my #MSWL for anyone who wants to take a gander. Still looking for the next fantasy or sci-fi MS that pushes my buttons. I like a little darkness, a harrowing adventure. Also always looking for NF in a bunch of categories.

-crime, thrillers and suspense. Either cosy (e.g Over My Dead Body by Maz Evans or Richard Osman-esque), blackly comic (like My Sister, the Serial Killer) or intelligent and inclusive (Gillian Flynn vibes). I also love novels that feature a 'beat the system' narrative
