Cinemystery: Edgar Award Winner Bent Road by Lori Roy Optioned for Film

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

Lori Roy's debut thriller Bent Road was the winner earlier this year of the Edgar Award for Best First Novel … and now we're learning that Cross Creek Pictures has optioned the book for film. Mark Mallouk has been selected to write the adapted screenplay.

Roy's next book will be published in June 2013: Until She Comes Home, a tale of spellbinding suspense in which a pair of seemingly unrelated murders crumbles the facade of a changing Detroit neighborhood.

Bent Road by Lori Roy

Bent Road
Lori Roy

One family's struggle with a past never laid to rest …

For twenty years, Celia Scott has watched her husband, Arthur, hide from the secrets surrounding his sister Eve's death. But when the 1967 Detroit riots frighten him even more than his Kansas past, he convinces Celia to pack up their family and return to the road he grew up on, Bent Road, and the same small town where Eve mysteriously died. And then a local girl disappears, catapulting the family headlong into a dead man's curve …

On Bent Road, a battered red truck cruises ominously along the prairie; a lonely little girl dresses in her dead aunt's clothes; a boy hefts his father's rifle in search of a target; and a mother realizes she no longer knows how to protect her children. It is a place where people learn: Sometimes killing is the kindest way.
