The Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton Optioned for Film

The Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton

Steve Hamilton's 2011 Edgar Award-winning Best Novel The Lock Artist has been optioned for film by Shane Salerno, who co-wrote the screenplay adaptation of Don Winslow's Savages. Salerno is expected to co-write the adapted screenplay with Hamilton.

Marked by tragedy, traumatized at the age of eight, Michael, now eighteen, is no ordinary young man. Besides not uttering a single word in ten years, he discovers the one thing he can somehow do better than anyone else. Whether it's a locked door without a key, a padlock with no combination, or even an eight-hundred pound safe ... he can open them all.

It's an unforgivable talent. A talent that will make young Michael a hot commodity with the wrong people and, whether he likes it or not, push him ever close to a life of crime. Until he finally sees his chance to escape, and with one desperate gamble risks everything to come back home to the only person he ever loved, and to unlock the secret that has kept him silent for so long.

The Lock Artist — the Kindle edition is, as of the date and time of this post, priced at just $2.99 by its publisher, Minotaur Books — is Hamilton's second stand-alone novel; he is also the author of the Alex McKnight mystery series, the first entry of which also recognized with an Edgar Award for Best First Novel.
