I really enjoy noir mysteries. They are so sinister and devious and delicious. I really enjoy flawed characters that you should hate but kinda love. Send me your messed up, nefarious, duplicitous, shrewd, sneaky, deceitful, calculating, manipulative, scheming, anti-heroes! #mswl

Would love to see noir detective stories set in almost any other genre but the mystery must be central/taken seriously! #mswl

Huge fan of domestic noir that gets under the skin - I've seen bad mothers by the bucketload but what about fathers and daughters?

#MSWL: I'd love a noir told from the femme fatale POV, rather than the PI.
