Mysterious killers. Sinister stalkers. Dark, thrilling secrets.

Let’s face it: we’re thrill-seekers, both as readers and as authors. So if you’ve got a mysterious or spine-tingling story to share with the world, this comprehensive list of publishers wants nothing more than to make your dream a reality!
