    One of those Amazon hits comes from a book that discusses fraudulent editing company Edit Ink, to which Davie for a time made referrals.

    The other is just a list of agency names--and an old one, too (pub date is 2001).

    You need to actually check out the hits you get on Amazon to see what they mean.

    Ok, thanks Victoria. So this means stay away from this agency?

    At the least, it means that your best bet to avoid wasting time chasing down every person who ever called themselves agent is to stick with active lists like AgentQuery and QueryTracker.

    There's no non-scraped mention of Ms. Davie after 2004.
