You’re in the right place.

AgentMatch has a complete list of every agent in the UK with full detail about who they are and what kind of work they represent.

So here’s what you do.

  1. Head over here.
  2. Click on the “select genres” box and choose “Crime & thrillers” from the pop-up list.
  3. You’ll find that there are a huge number of agents who represent work in this area. (Basically: most of them will happily represent crime; there are just about no agents who specialise only in that area.) So you’ll need to filter your list some more. Use our other search tools to bring your selection down to a manageable total.
  4. Then dive into individual agent profiles and read what each agent says about themselves.
  5. Make your final shortlist selection
