In fiction, I am looking for dark suspense and psychological thrillers (no procedural thrillers, please) along the lines of Gone Girl. I love noir and crime fiction, especially anything that plays around with the genre and subverts expectations. I am interested primarily in narratives about smart, flawed, dangerous women of all kinds. Dream buys: The … Continue reading
