    Is it okay to ask authors about their agents?

    Hi all,

    So I received an offer of representation from someone who is among other things an agent...and the person is shady as @#($&#.

    And yet it appears s/he's sold to major publishing houses.

    I would go into far more detail on who this person is but I don't want to give away identifiable specifics.

    Anyways, I want to ask the authors this person has represented to major publishers what they thought of his work. Is that considered an okay thing or is it considered going behind the agent's back, especially if the authors get back to the agent?
