🩸 Crime 🚓

Likewise, crime with a standout quality is always welcome, whether police procedural, historical crime, detective, psychological crime or crime thriller. Nothing overly gratuitous please!

🦊 Cosy Crime 🕵️

I’d absolutely love cosy crime from *any* period, whether contemporary like Janice Hallett and Richard Osman, traditional Golden Age murder mystery, or historical crime. The more suspects and red herrings, the better!

In my inbox everyday looking for an exciting novel. I'd love an upmarket mystery with complex characters and a hooky crime, or family drama, or something that just catches me by surprise. Here's what I read in 2022. I did not dislike 1 yet. (titles in next tweet) #MSWL

I'm a huge true crime fan and lately I've been obsessed with stories of young men who mysteriously vanish from their cars. There are so many of these stories in the true crime world... I'd love to see a fiction or nonfiction project inspired by this phenomenon #mswl
