The next Cornelia Read?
I say this because a) the acquiring editor is Kristen Weber and b) the agent in question is Rolph Blythe, who is Read’s agent:
Gabriella Herkert’s ANIMAL INSTINCT, about a legal investigator working
a seemingly straightforward missing pet case until it spirals into a
murder investigation, to Kristen Weber at NAL, in a three-book deal, by
Rolph Blythe at Dunow, Carlson & Lerner (world).
