I want a mystery that characters wish they hadn't solved. A mystery that isn't about the mystery, really, at all, but about the people--the kind of ending that feels inevitable, like putting these people in that room at once--well, nothing else could have happened.
My main goal this year is to build out my adult list, so I'm eagerly looking for more #mystery #suspense #thriller, book club and upmarket fiction! #MSWL

In mystery: My tastes here are pretty specific. To go back to my old friend, Taylor Swift, say you have a story that would comp to “Vigilante Shit” or “no body, no crime” then you’re 100% in my wheelhouse. #mswl
#MSWL I am looking for stories with unexpected twists. I especially love working with mystery, thriller, women's fiction, and romance authors. I can’t wait to find my next favorite manuscript!
It's #MSWL Day! Find mine here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/carl… In short, I like books with black covers, and I like books with pink covers. I rep #YA, #MG, mystery, suspense, horror, thriller, pop fiction & contemporary romance.
It's #mswl day!
I've been at @groveatlantic for nearly 10 months (😱) and I've been lucky to acquire some dream projects... but I'm not done!
I'm still looking for crime fiction/thrillers from authors looking to write a book every year(ish).
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
Though I'm still closed to queries & will open BRIEFLY in April for Hist Fic & YA Myst/Thrillers, here's my full #MSWL. I'll open again after my brief April opening & will want everything on this list and more! So work on your queries and edit those pages!
I'm still closed until about April. BUT...I'll reopen for about 1 week only & will give advance notice here. I'll be looking for ONLY HISTORICAL ROMANCE (Regency, preferred) & YA Mystery/Thriller. Strong desire for BIPOC & LGBTQ authors/stories. So get those queries ready!
It's #MSWL Day, & what I'm most excited about right now is LOVE stories! Please, please gimme 'em! Also, I'd love to see thrillers in the adult & YA space. There's more–because I'm greedy like that–so check out the new manuscript wishlist page. Thanks! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/Jemi…
It's #MSWL day today and mine's a little dusty, but currently seeking surprising and fun mainstream novels and mystery/thrillers with iconic women at the forefront!

I'm closed to queries for the next couple months for dedicated reading time, but in honor of #MSWL Day I redid my MSWL! I am looking for all types of romance, SFF (plus horror), mysteries, thrillers, YA, and some small subsets of literary and commercial fiction!
#MSWL: Horror thrillers along the lines of Hidden Pictures
Christmas/holiday thrillers and mysteries
“Cozy fantasies” in the vein of The House in the Cerulean Sea
Books about books, especially in the horror or thriller space
