Minerva Koenig's NINE DAYS, featuring a damned good criminal now in the witness protection program, who doesn't have much of a chance to adjust to her new identity in the Lone Star sticks before murder strikes, to Toni Kirkpatrick at Thomas Dunne Books, in a two-book deal, by Jessica Alvarez at BookEnds (World English).
I did read the entire manuscript for NINE DAYS and loved it. I knew I wasn't the right agent though, so regretfully sent her the names of some agents I thought would be a better fit. Sure enough, Jessica Alvarez was EXACTLY the right choice.
I can't claim any part of this success because the query didn't need any revisions. I'll just have to settle for knowing Query Shark and QS readers were the first of soon-to-be-many to recognize this wonderful new writer!
Huzzahs all around!
