Barbara Rogan began her publishing career with Fawcett Books and later founded a literary agency in Israel. The author of eight novels and coauthor of two books of nonfiction, she lives on Long Island in New York.
When a would–be writer brandishing a bad novel accosts literary agent Jo Donovan, she writes it off as just another occupational hazard. A ridiculous figure in trench coat and fedora, he’d been rejected by the agency but persists in believing he’s destined to be a great writer and that Jo will be his muse. Scary, yes, but well within the realm of failedwriter madness. But when her agency and writers fall prey to vicious pranks, Jo senses something far more sinister than your run–of–the–mill egomaniac.
