Telemystery: Two More Jeffrey Archer Novels to be Adapted for Television

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Earlier this year we reported that Jeffrey Archer's 2006 stand-alone crime thriller False Impression was being adapted for film. Now we're learning that New Franchise, which owns the rights to the book, is leaning towards developing a television drama to take advantage of the multiple and intersecting character-driven storylines. (More details on the book, below.)

New Franchise is also looking to adapt the second "Kane and Abel" novel by Archer as a series as well. Published in 1982, The Prodigal Daughter follows a multi-generational family feud involving power and politics.

Neither adaptation is as yet associated with a network.

These projects are separate from another from NBC. The network is adapting the author's 1998 political thriller The Eleventh Commandment, which is in the pilot script stage.

Why was an elegant lady brutally murdered the night before 9/11?

Why was a successful New York banker not surprised to receive a woman's left ear in the morning mail?

Why did a top Manhattan lawyer work only for one client, but never charge a fee?

Why did a young woman with a bright career steal a priceless Van Gogh painting?

Why was an Olympic gymnast paid a million dollars an assignment when she didn't have a bank account?

Why was an honors graduate working as a temporary secretary after inheriting a fortune?

Why was an English Countess ready to kill the banker, the lawyer and the gymnast even if it meant spending the rest of her life in jail?

Why was a Japanese steel magnate happy to hand over $50,000,000 to a woman he had only met once?

Why was a senior FBI agent trying to work out the connection between these eight apparently innocent individuals?

All these questions are answered … but not before a breathtaking journey of twists and turns that will take readers from New York to London to Bucharest and on to Tokyo, and finally a sleepy English village, where the mystery of Van Gogh's last painting will finally be resolved.
