Mystery and Thriller Books That Should Be Movies


As an avid reader, I sometimes come to the end of a particularly cinematic book and think: “When will the film come out?” I made up a dream only to find out that the movie rights haven’t even been snapped. Out of all the mystery books I’ve read – my favorite genre, of course – there are some that turn out to be handy for the screen. While the book is (almost) always better than the movie, I would still pay hard cash to see the following adaptations in theaters. Fair warning that a handful of these had movies on the move at some point, but these deals now appear to be pending.
