I got my information about the Random House deal from Publishers Marketplace, which lists all reported deals that publishers and agents submit. (Century is part of
Random House Group (UK) which is part of Bertelsmann.) To access Publishers Marketplace, you have to have a subscription, which may be why it didn't show up in a search.
