Here are the subgenres for thriller novels that we are most interested in publishing:
Crime fiction: This literary genre encompasses stories about crime and detectives, usually with a focus on the motives of the criminals. There are several subgenres of crime fiction including detective fiction, courtroom drama, hard-boiled thrillers, and legal thrillers.
Legal Thriller: This subgenre includes stories involving lawyers on a mission to solve important cases (usually, the client is innocent but there are nefarious forces at work which stymie the attorney’s efforts). Protagonists in legal thrillers often find themselves and their close relationships in mortal danger.
Medical Thriller: Medical thrillers include characters with medical backgrounds. Split Second and Game Changer are two of the bestselling books of this subgenre.
Political Thriller: This is a type of thriller that is set against the backdrop of a political power struggle. Political thrillers are often complex with plot twists and a series of subplots, but they often revolve around characters fighting for an important political appointment or conquest. A subcategory of this subgenre is spy fiction.
Spy Fiction is literature involving espionage inspired by rivalries and intrigues between major political powers and the establishment of modern intelligence agencies.
Psychological Thriller: A distinguishing characteristic of a psychological thriller is a marked emphasis on the mental states of its characters: their perceptions, thoughts, distortions, and general struggle to grasp reality. Many psychological thriller protagonists have psychological conditions or skewed perceptions of reality which make them untrustworthy (and exciting) narrators.
Techno-thriller: This is a hybrid genre drawing from science fiction, thrillers, spy fiction, action, and war novels. Techno-thrillers include usually include many technical details on their subject matter, typically military technology. Usually science fiction writers find themselves writing techno-thrillers because of the close similarities in these genres.
Mystery Fiction: This is a thriller subgenre that deals with stories of mysterious deaths and crimes to be solved. Mystery fiction may involve a supernatural mystery where the solution does not have to be logical, and sometimes there is no crime involved.
