After two years of wrong turns, Haller is back in the courtroom. When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Haller inherits his biggest case yet: the defense of Walter Elliott, a prominent studio executive accused of murdering his wife and her lover.

But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent’s killer may be coming for him next.

Enter Harry Bosch. Determined to find Vincent’s killer, he is not opposed to using Haller as bait. But as danger mounts and the stakes rise, these two loners realize their only choice is to work together.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

The magic just keeps unfolding.

Grab your best gown and pearls because Taylor Jenkins Reid’s NY Times Bestseller will soon become more than just words on a page.

The deviously fascinating novel centers around the reclusive yet iconic Hollywood legend Evelyn Hugo as she recounts the details of her life to an unknown magazine reporter named Monique Grant, who is unsure of why such a public figure has chosen her to write her biography.

Through her conversations with Monique, Evelyn unfolds a journey of fame, ambition, friendship and forbidden love — plus, of course, stories concerning each of her seven husbands… and one big confession along the way.

Reid will executive produce the screen adaptation with Margaret Chernin while Liz Tigelaar (Little Fires Everywhere and Casual) will write the screenplay.

The Gray Man

Star-studded action anyone?

Mark Greaney’s The Gray Man is a book-to-screen adaptation we cannot get enough of, and we’ve got the cast to prove it.

The Gray Man is CIA operative Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling), aka, Sierra Six. Plucked from a federal penitentiary and recruited by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton), Gentry was once a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned merchant of death.

But now the tables have turned and Six is the target, hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former cohort at the CIA, who will stop at nothing to take him out. Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) has his back. He’ll need it.
