A representative for the jewelry store that claims Lindsay Lohan stole a $2,500 necklace contacted a literary agent trying to sell a book about the situation, the agent tells

And if that doesn’t sound like a page-turner to you, then you’re in agreement with literary agent Sharlene Martin who turned down the jeweler instantly.

What’s more, a source close to Lindsay’s attorney, Shawn Holley, told that , "it's absolutely stunning and shocking that they are trying to get a book deal. It's truly appalling."

Martin told this about her conversation with the store’s rep: "He said he is the publicist for the jewelry store, and that they want to do a book about the Lindsay Lohan necklace story. 

"I told him, ‘I'm sorry, I don’t see it. This is a moment, not a book.’”

Martin told us that the publicist did not offer any new details on the incident, and she simply didn’t see any way this could be turned into a book.

"The truth be told...if I were interested I would have asked questions,” Martin told “I represent legitimate clients.  You know instantly when someone calls you whether it’s a moment, a minute or whether it has legs as a book. This is a fleeting moment.  I don’t see how there is enough to put between the pages of a book.”

She said their entire conversation lasted just 30 seconds, and she said she wasn’t interested in representing the store.
