STRONG STORY BUT..
"I have recently managed to take a look at your manuscript The Dangling Man. I did enjoy reading it and passed it to another reader for a second opinion. Unfortunately, they were not altogether keen, and I'm afraid that on balance we are going to have to pass. It is a strong story based on a believable character, but it's not the sort of thing we are looking for at present.."
