Detective

Mary C. Moore @Mary_C_Moore · Feb 24

Intriguing female sleuth with Sherlock tendencies in a modern world. More mystery than thriller. #MSWL

#MSWL Inspy/Christian thriller like Cara Putnam’s HIDDEN JUSTICE series except with a religious yet ultra strong, savvy & compassionate lead female detective. This MSWL inspired by Dateline Secrets Uncovered Good & Evil episode’s real-life Detectice Trapp. She’s the lead I want.

Would love a detective series set in Northern California, quirky hippie-farmer small towns, marijuana fields, fire season, Pomo country, wineries, coastal redwoods. #MSWL

I know I won't see all the #PitDark pitches, so if you have a gritty, dark story set in Victorian London--maybe with a detective, maybe with some magic--and I miss it, send me a query! #mswl

While we’re getting to know each other, how about some #mswl? Today I’ll talk about YA:

- Contemporary with earnest, engaging voices (WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, TO ALL THE BOYS, DUMPLIN’)
- Lush fantasy (CARAVAL, Grisha series)
- Sassy girl detective a la Veronica Mars
(1/2)

#MSWL I don’t usually ask for thrillers but I’d like one where a detective or FBI agent purchases a used computer at a local junk shop & finds disturbing images on it—including a photograph of a well-known missing person, someone he personally knows. And she may still be alive.

Ooh, #mswl day! Right now I’m craving great SF/horror mashups, general dark horror, PI mysteries, gothic suspense, and dark thrillers - YA & adult! Diverse voices always a plus!

#MSWL Day! Send me your haunting, upmarket and nuanced detective novels, like Tana French and Megan Abbott. More female protagonists please! Complex, coming of age, contemporary relationships, think Marlena and The Immortalists. Adult only.

It's Adult day for #dvpit and it's my birthday🎈! So here's my birthday #dvpit wish-list: a lesbian detective series, diverse sci-fi (I ❤️ Becky Chambers), diverse historical and I'd love to find a high-concept with a darker side (think Black Mirror in a novel) #MSWL

Maisie Lawrence @MaisieFrances · 25 Apr 2018

Holla at #DVPit authors who are pitching commercial fiction! What I would love to find: a lesbian detective series, diverse fantasy or sci-fi, sweeping historical fiction with diverse characters. #MSWL

I would love a good mystery with a diverse detective that’s not set in another country... #MSWL
