Thriller/Suspense: She didn't break precedent. Responded next day with a request for first 50 pages and a synopsis. Not a woman of many words, but how many agents do you know who respond so quickly? Rejection is bad enough without having to wait 120 days for it. Or, for that matter, no response at all. Alice Martell is a rarity in the agent business. Now, if she asks for the full, I'll love her.
