Heist Society by Ally Carter to be Adapted for Film

Heist Society by Ally Carter

Drew Barrymore will direct and produce a film adaptation of Ally Carter's young-adult thriller Heist Society for Warner Bros. Shauna Cross will write the screenplay.

In the book, when Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her to the Louvre ... to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria ... to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own — scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving "the life" for a normal life proves harder than she'd expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring her back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has good reason: a powerful mobster's art collection has been stolen, and he wants it returned. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat's dad needs her help.

For Kat there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's (very crooked) history — and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.

The studio is expected to age the characters from their teens into their early 20s.

The second book in the series, Uncommon Criminals, was published earlier this month by Hyperion.

Bantam to Publish Graphic Novel Adaptation of A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

A Game of Thrones Graphic Novel

Bantam Books, an imprint of Random House, announced yesterday that it will publish a graphic novel (comic series) adaptation of George R. R. Martin's fantasy thriller A Game of Thrones.

The series will be adapted and scripted by Daniel Abraham and illustrated by Tommy Patterson. The first issue of the monthly comic — which will be published by Dynamite Entertainment — is planned publication in September 2011, with compilations of the comics in graphic novel form to follow under the Bantam imprint.

"It's a real privilege and a treat to be involved with reinterpreting A Game of Thrones," says writer Daniel Abraham. "It's a brilliant piece of work, and watching the strength of that story come into a visual medium is fantastic."

The novel also served as the basis for HBO's Game of Thrones that just concluded its first season and has been renewed for a second — which is likely to be based on the second book in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, A Clash of Kings.

About the series: Long ago, in a time long forgotten, a mysterious event threw the seasons of the world out of balance. Now the kingdom is blessed by golden summers that go on for years, and cursed by cruel winters that can last a generation. In the cool north of this kingdom is a royal family ruled by Eddard Stark. The symbol of the royal house of the Starks is a direwolf; their motto is "Winter is coming." As indeed, it is. For the Iron Throne of Westeros is once more under contention. With Eddard's help, Robert Baratheon won it away from the corrupt Targaryens, who had ruled Westeros for generations. But when Eddard is summoned south to help an aging king hold the throne they both won, he finds himself enmeshed in a web of treachery and lies, as faction after faction plays that most dangerous game of all: the game of thrones.

Review: Death Toll by Jim Kelly

Death Toll by Jim Kelly

Death Toll by Jim Kelly. A Peter Shaw Mystery. Minotaur Books Hardcover, June 2011.

The cold case investigations in this multi-layered mystery are nicely plotted, intricately devised without being overly complicated. This is a fine example of the books in this series, one that should have a long run ahead of it.

International Trailer for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011)

An international trailer for the film adaptation of John le Carré's 1974 thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy has been released; we've embedded it below.

Set in the 1970s, recently retired MI6 agent George Smiley (Gary Oldman) is doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the Circus, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage.

Tasked with investigating which of his trusted former colleagues has chosen to betray him and their country, Smiley narrows his search to four suspects—all experienced, urbane, successful agents—but past histories, rivalries and friendships make it far from easy to pinpoint the man who is eating away at the heart of the British establishment.

The film also stars Colin Firth (Bill Haydon, "Tailor"), Mark Strong (Jim Prideaux), Benedict Cumberbatch (Peter Guillam), Ciarán Hinds (Roy Bland, "Soldier"), Toby Jones (Percy Alleline, "Tinker"), and Kathy Burke (Connie Sachs). It will open in US theaters November 18th, 2011.

About Bake Sale Murder (from the publisher): Ever since local developer Fred Stanton and his wife, Mimi, built five modular homes next door to Lucy Stone's farmhouse, life just hasn't been the same. With Mimi complaining about everything from the state of Lucy's lawn to another neighbor's lovable dog, quaint Tinker's Cove, Maine, is now entangled in cul-de-sac politics and backstabbing. And when Mimi doesn't show up for her shift at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, the scent of burnt sugar leads Lucy to a shocking discovery — Mimi, face down on her kitchen floor-with a knife in her back.

While the police start their investigation, Lucy gets busy writing up the murder for the local Pennysaver — and following a few leads of her own. Lucy knows the women in her neighborhood didn't like Mimi, but they certainly didn't want her dead ... right?

Review: The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes by Marcus Sakey

The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes by Marcus Sakey

The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes by Marcus Sakey. Non-series. Dutton Hardcover, June 2011.

This creatively imagined and solidly written novel of suspense is marred only slightly by several contrived story elements and a sense that, in an effort to continually surprise the reader, the plot needs to be more clever than it already is.

Film Adaptation of The Host by Stephenie Meyer to be Released by Open Road Films

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Open Road Films has acquired the distribution rights to the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's 2008 bestselling sci-fi thriller The Host.

Production is expected to begin in February 2012, with Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War) directing his own screenplay adaptation.

Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones) has been signed to star as Melanie Stryder, a young woman who refuses to allow an alien species that has invaded the earth to take over her soul.

Wanderer, who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves—Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

The film has a tentative release date of March 2013.

About Executive Privilege (from the publisher): When private detective Dana Cutler is hired to follow college student Charlotte Walsh, she never imagines the trail will lead to the White House. But the morning after Walsh's clandestine meeting with Christopher Farrington, President of the United States, the pretty young coed is dead—the latest victim, apparently, of a fiend dubbed "the D.C. Ripper."

A junior associate in an Oregon law firm, Brad Miller is stunned by the death row revelations of convicted serial killer Clarence Little. Though Little accepts responsibility for a string of gruesome murders, he swears he was framed for one of them: the death of a teenaged babysitter who worked for then-governor Farrington.

Suddenly nowhere in America is safe for a small-time private eye and a fledgling lawyer who possess terrifying evidence that suggests the unthinkable: that someone at the very highest level of government, perhaps the president himself, is a cold and brutal killer.

After 12 years on the Halifax police force, homicide detective Allan Stanton has reached his limit. The days of thinking of himself as a crusader for justice are long gone, replaced by a weary sense that he’s just there to clean up the detritus left in the wake of the human predators that stalk the city streets. The job has taken everything from him—his innocence, his joy, even his family—and he finally makes the decision to leave it all behind and start anew.

Before he can do so, he’s assigned another case. This time the killer isn’t content just to slay his victims, but takes parts of their bodies with him when he goes. A pair of eyes. A set of hands. Even a heart. The murders have all the hallmarks of a serial killer who’s collecting trophies. But as Allan unravels the grisly mystery, he realizes that nothing could be further from the truth. He discovers that the killer might just be closer than he ever expected and has targeted him as the next victim.
