I just finished a paranormal mystery novel and have been looking for agents who represent that area. But after some searches, there really isn't much I see. When an agent says they're interested in mystery, I suppose that also includes paranormal mystery too? I wonder though if they're looking for straight up mystery and that's it. There's horror which is more open to those paranormal elements, but people might be put off with the mystery elements? I don't know. It's hard to know who to query to honestly. Does anyone have any knowledge on this?

I suggest looking for agents listed as accepting Paranormal and/or (Urban/Contemporary) Fantasy. Bonus points if they're listed as accepting Mystery.
If an agent lists Mystery in their genres but doesn't have anything speculative, they're probably not open to Paranormal Mystery.
