Michael Koryta's The Prophet Optioned for Film

The Prophet by Michael Koryta

Expect to see quite a bit of crime novelist Michael Koryta's work in theaters soon!

The author of the "Lincoln Perry" mysteries has three of his stand-alones in various stages of film adaptations.

Koryta is adapting his own 2010 thriller So Cold The River for New Regency films. Chris Columbus will be directing his own adaptation of Koryta's third stand-alone, Cypress House.

And now we're learning that a project is underway to adapt Koryta's yet-to-be-published fifth stand-alone, The Prophet (Little, Brown; August 2012 hardcover and ebook editions).

In The Prophet, Koryta returns to the traditional crime novel with a story of two brothers, Adam and Kent Austin. When the brothers were teens, their sister was kidnapped and murdered. Time drove the brothers their separate ways, but the murder of another teenage girl brings the past violently back to Adam and Kent.
