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!

I was lucky enough to get my grubby hands on an ARC and loved every second of it, just like I love Rock Paper Tiger. You may not be agenting any more, but you can always be proud for having chosen Lisa Brackmann and getting her out into the world!
Other Lisa says
Thanks for the shout-out, Nathan! You'll get thank yous in my books for as long as I keep writing them.
Bryan Russell says
Rock Paper Tiger rocked. Possibly it also papered and tigered. Anyway, it was kind of awesome.
Roland D. Yeomans says
May your tomorrow have a happy surprise for shouting out a friend.
Good luck, Lisa!
Nathan: Now that you're not active in that end of it, how do you feel today about including something personal to the agent you are querying?
Congratulations, Lisa! That's wonderful – good luck with your new release! 🙂
