And this https://www.bustle.com/p/why-do-we-love-to-read-girl-thrillers-so-much-experts-say-its-about-more-than-suspense-69606 about why "Girl" books are so enduringly popular.

I haven't read any of the current crop, but it interested me that Philip Marlowe (Raymond Chandler's PI) and Agatha Christie, among others, as well as true crime in the 1980s and "chick lit" from the 1990s were all brought in as likely predecessors to the current popularity of suspense/thrillers with unreliable narrators, a relationship- and woman-centric approach.

I was out and about all day yesterday and it has worn me out! Today I'm staying in with my books and my internet and my streaming videos, and I shall have some yummy cheese fries as well. :p
