"This isn’t something I can consider further, but please don’t take that as an assessment of worth. Some good and publishable books just aren’t right for me.
Agents are all looking for different things and what’s not a fit for me can be exactly what someone else is looking for. Please don’t think of this as rejection
so much as redirection to a more suitable agent. I strongly urge you to query widely."

Queried Jan 9 (suspense, 71k) Rejected Jan 11 (very quick response, which I appreciate!)
Same form letter that others have reported, I believe, but it's a very kind one so I'll copy it here:
