Hey all, I'm having trouble writing a query letter for my speculative near-future thriller. It's about a world in transition. Where we, as humans, are tossed into a maelstrom of being ruled and controlled by the first artificial superintelligence. The book has multiple viewpoints (5 of them) since it's not really about any one of them more than the other. Each of them has an arc that deals with their connection to what's happening. As the plot progresses, the viewpoint changes back and forth through the characters (each time to the one most relevant to what's happening at that moment). To make things worse, the hook has to do with the first POV, who is killed very early in the book (her assassination is the inciting event). I've tried drafting something that focuses more on the world-building and atmosphere, but it feels to me like it doesn't work when I don't talk about characters at all (since it's obviously expected), it doesn't work if I talk about just one of them, since it leaves too much of the plot out, and it doesn't work if I talk about all of them because that would make the letter too long. Help! Any ideas?
