One of my former clients has a fantastic new book out today! Hour of the Rat is the sequel to Lisa Brackmann's stellar debut Rock Paper Tiger (here's the query letter Lisa sent me for Rock Paper Tiger), and her newest after Getaway, published last year.
After surviving the harrowing events in RPT, Iraq war veteran and newly minted art dealer Ellie McEnroe goes looking for one of her soldier friend's brother in the Chinese countryside, where she is sucked into a conspiracy involving eco-terrorists, a biotech company and a reclusive billionaire.
This is truly top-notch literary suspense with an international flair, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Check it out!
