"The Wife" Soon To Be a Movie From Amazon Studios
Amazon Studios has acquired the rights to the Alafair Burke novel The Wife, with the author set to write the feature script.
Published in January by Harper, the novel seems a perfect fit for this #MeToo moment. The book deal is high six figures and scripting fees put it into seven-figures.
Angela, a woman who suffered extreme trauma in her teen years, learns that her celebrity husband may be a sexual predator.
Jason Powell is a handsome NYU professor whose book on socially conscious investing called Equalonomics is a raging bestseller. He runs a successful consulting firm and hosts a top-rated podcast that has enabled Angela and her husband to live an idyllic life with their son in Greenwich Village.
Then, his intern files a complaint at the NYPD Special Victims Unit claiming he made inappropriate sexual suggestions at the office. A second alleged victim surfaces and soon there is a murder and Angela has to confront past personal trauma she thought was far in the rear view mirror.
Amazon Studios won the book in a bidding battle that involved five suitors.
It is the 13th novel for Burke, whose profile soared with her novel The Ex, in 2016, and is a bestselling Edgar Award-nominated author.
The Stanford Law grad and former prosecutor is also a professor of criminal law and procedure at Hofstra University.
Harper Collins president/publisher Jonathan Burnham said in a statement: “We’re thrilled to see Alafair Burke’s new novel take her renown and sales to a new level: it is a narrative that couldn’t be more timely, and a brilliantly twisty tale that shows Burke at her very best.”
The deal was made on behalf of the Philip G. Spitzer Literary Agency by Hotchkiss & Associates.

The Whitman-Hanson Girls Varsity Lacrosse team won their preliminary round state tournament game at Nauset today 10-4. The first half saw the Warriors come out with some speed and WH found themselves in a 3-0 hole. Some small adjustments on defense and more hustle on the circle led the Panthers to a 5-3 lead with 4 minutes to go in the first half.ReplyDelete
