I have contacted numerous literary agents that handle suspense-thriller authors—but when I query them—including providing bestseller critiques of my work—they won’t even provide the courtesy of reading a single word of the manuscript offered.
What can you suggest?

Here are but a few critiques:

Bestselling authors and others praised WR.PARK’s recent suspense-thriller-mysteries:

“For me, WR.PARK’s top-notch page-turner Overlay brought back memories of Robert Ludlum at his best in masterpieces like The Chancellor Manuscript and The Holcroft Covenant. It’s all here: the shadowy conspiracy, the all-powerful villain, and the maverick hero.

--Bestselling author Jon Land

The Dacian Resurgence is a nonstop rollercoaster from Europe to Washington, reaching from deep into the dark history of Rome to the latest headlines. Part Clancy…part Cussler…all Park.

--Bestselling author James Rollins

The Franciscan Trilogy: It's here! It's published.It's very, very good. It's about murder, suicide, extortion, assassins, devilish plots—and the result is a narrative with more twists, turns and terror than a roller coaster through purgatory. It's a ride worth taking.”

--Publishers’ Auxiliary

“In his latest thriller, COMA, WR.PARK has created a chilling and suspenseful plot that compels you to keep turning pages.”

--Bestselling author W. Craig Reed

"Take a determined CIA agent, a degenerate assassin, a pair of desirable women, a slew of dismembered congressmen, and you'll have yourself a delicious stew of storytelling from WR.PARK in his devilishly conceived thriller, COMA."

--Bestselling author Robert S. Levinson

Midwest Book Review wrote: “COMAis ten times as exciting as The Jackal.”

Fatal Incision is a captivating historical thriller
about the hunt for the infamous and elusive Jack the Ripper that is sure to win Park fans on both sides of the Atlantic.”

--Bestselling author R. Barri Flowers

Fatal Incision is the best thriller I have read so
far this year
, it is chalked full of suspense, murder, even romance, a can’t put it down, bone chiller historical mystery, with a twist.”

---Professional reviewer posting on
Amazon Patricia Foltz

“Fatal Incision is a staggering Ripper novel. Today I became a fan of WR PARK, who wrote Fatal Incision, the latest intriguing account of the notorious Jack the Ripper. PARK's take on the serial killer left me forgetting to do the laundry and feed the dog. Stellar writing. Plenty of in-the-dark-of-night action. An ending I didn't see coming. Highly recommended read for Ripper fans.”

Three questions:

1. How do you know they aren't reading a single word of your MS?

2. Is your book in print already? Or is this a new MS?

3. Are you following the agents' submission guidelines to the letter?
