🇨🇦 Canadian authors
🧭 Dan Brown-esque mystery/thrillers

Crime and thriller: Send me truly unputdownable books with twists that you really don’t see coming or mysteries that get the cogs of your brain turning, like True Crime Story or The Appeal. (Not police procedural though please). 🦹‍♀️

Adult Thrillers: I recently found a LOVE for this and am craving to read more. I love a dark academia setting, serial killers, stalkers, locked in a room/home. I love not being able to figure something out until the end, give me unexpected twists and turns, keep me guessing! 12/

My MSWL can be found on, well, MSWL: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/zachary-honey/

In short: I'm still in the thriller game. Looking for rural set thrillers, mysteries, select horror and select historical fiction. Bring it on!

Thriller/mystery/suspense: More open here! Though note that I tend to like more focus on character/relationship than is most typical for these genres--not necessarily as plot-driven as is typical--and very literary writing (I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU by Kara A. Kennedy).

- Mysteries and thrillers that are mysterious and/or thrilling from the first chapter. You can have set-up, but the tone should clearly convey what genre I'm reading.
- Adventures like Pax and Wolf Called Wander
- Clean, tight writing styles. I'm a minimalist by nature.

#MSWL time!

I'd love to see mysteries/thrillers (literary or upmarket) with deep, psychological interiority that shows voice and personality. Think Searcher by Tana French, or Birnam Wood by Eleanor Catton.
Extra interested if there's a faux/red-flag love interest involved.

My current #MSWL . I am in particular looking for YA Thrillers, Romance, Boarding School settings, and Graphic Novels. On the Adult side, I'd love to see more Popular Science and Narrative Nonfiction, as well as Romance, and Thrillers...but there is more! 😎
