QR Markham Plagiarism Recall

Publisher's Weekly is reporting that: "Little, Brown Withdraws 'Assassin of Secrets' from Booksellers Because of Lifted Passages"

It seems to be a proactive approach from the publishers, as of right now, no one online is reporting the source of the "lifted" material in this thriller/spy novel--although HuffPo is looking.

Update: "According to a Little, Brown spokeswoman, Nicole Dewey, "Assassin of Secrets" borrowed from Ian Fleming's James Bond novels and fiction by Robert Ludlum and Christopher McCrary."

Update: Edward Champion spells it all out.
