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

High-concept, female-led thrillers. We prefer our protagonists snarky and morally gray. Who doesn’t love a messed up antiheroine?

We’re also looking for writers in the crime & mystery space. Very commercial and propulsive. Could be dark or light and quirky, like KNIVES OUT. 3/4

"I'm on the lookout for mystery thrillers that explore a 'true crime' in their fictional world. Who does it impact, and how? What is justice? Think A GOOD GIRL'S GUIDE TO MURDERING, NOTHING CAN HURT YOU, MY FLAWLESS LIFE, and JACKAL."

Domestic #Thriller novels with protagonists who make dreadful decisions for all the right (or wrong) reasons.

Show me inner vulnerability, and I will root for the worst villain and hope they get away with it.

Yes to crime--murder, larceny, embezzlement--but no rape. 4/?
