Little Brown pulls Assassin of secrets

November 9, 2011

Little Brown has pulled Assassin of Secrets by Q.R. Markham because it appease that many passages were plagiarised from other spy novels.

Here is what PW has to say . The comments are very interesting. 

The UK publisher has also pulled the book.  The Guardian has more specifics on the problem.  James Bond superfans quickly spotted lifted passages.  Edward Champion on Reluctant Habits has listed problem passages.

Nancy bought this book based on two positive reviews.  We will be pulling this title and notifying the requestors that the publication has been cancelled.

    This is right up there with the Jayson Blair scandal at the New York Times. It’s disturbing that something like this can slip by the most respectable and professional of organizations and institutions, but it happens.
