Megan Abbott
and Alison Gaylin are both known for their suspense-filled novels.

Abbott often writes noir from a historical perspective such as Bury Me Deep and Queenpin.

But she also is an expert at contemporary suspense, with a twist, such as her 2012 Dare Me, which looked at the cut-throat world of cheerleading.

Dare Me
was named a “summer read” by O Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Newsday and the Wall Street Journal.

Gaylin’s latest novel is the suspense-filled Into the Dark, the second in her new series about Brenna Spector, a missing persons whose rare neurological disorder enables her to recall every detail of every day of her life.

A couple of years ago, Abbott and Gaylin teamed up for a graphic novel Normandy Gold. 

Normandy Gold
has been described as a Tarantino-esque graphic novel about a female sheriff who comes to 1970s Washington, D.C., to avenge the murder of her call girl sister.

Perhaps that comparison to Tarantino will soon be more than just a description.

Normandy Gold
has been optioned to New Regency, with Abbott and Gaylin to adapt.

We all know that an option is a long way from a property actually becoming a film.

But it’s a good start.

And I’m looking forward to the team of Abbott and Gaylin making it to the big screen.

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification
seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just do not know
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the
whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
