Submitted this novel to 2 other agents over the course of a few months, neither of whom responded.
Today I received the following rejection from the agency's Editorial Board after submitting to John Pearce,
making it clear that a no, in this case, is a no from the entire agency.

Dear [My Name]:

Thank you for allowing us to consider your query. Your submission has now been reviewed and unfortunately did not find a fit with any of our agents. Due to the time commitment and long term nature of the agent/author relationship, an agent needs to feel committed and enthralled with the work they are representing in order to do the best possible job of selling the manuscript to publishers.

Please accept our best wishes for the successful placement of your work. You have a very interesting idea for your story and we encourage you to keep submitting.

Kind Regards,
Editorial Board

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
