Karin Slaughter to Adapt her Novella Martin Misunderstood

Martin Misunderstood by Karin Slaughter
More information about the book

GalleyCat is reporting that mystery author Karin Slaughter has signed a deal to adapt her novella Martin Misunderstood into a film for release by the retail giant Tesco, which announced earlier this year a program to offer exclusive DVD adaptations of bestselling authors.

The 2008 book is currently only available outside the US (though it is available to purchase as an audiobook here).

About Martin Misunderstood (from the studio): Crime fiction obsessive Martin Reed is the proverbial butt of everyone's jokes. Working as a glorified accountant at Southern Toilet Supply and still living with his cantankerous mother, he has become resigned to the world in which he lives - the school bullies now pick on him in the workplace, women still spurn him and his arch enemy is now his supervisor. But then he arrives at work one morning to find the police on site. A co-worker has been brutally murdered and her body abandoned in a ditch. And the overwhelming evidence points to Martin -- especially when he can't or won't admit that he has an alibi. When a second victim is found in the company bathroom, things really conspire against Martin. The one bright star on his otherwise bleak horizon is the beautiful and sympathetic Detective Anther Albada, but even she's beginning to have her doubts about his innocence. Could Martin be guilty? Or is he just misunderstood?
