Netflix orders adaptation of Karin Slaughter’s Pieces Of Me

Karin Slaughter is one of the best crime writers in America, so it’s a bit of a surprise that none of her 26 have been adapted for TV or film (they’re seriously good!). So it’s very welcome news that Netflix is to adapt Slaughter’s 2018 novel, Pieces Of Her.

According to World Screen, the series will be an eight-parter.

Here’s the lowdown:

The story follows as an adrift young woman’s conception of her mother is forever changed after a Saturday afternoon trip to the mall together suddenly explodes into violence. As figures from her mother’s past start to resurface, she is forced to go on the run and on that journey, begins to piece together the truth of her mother’s previous identity and uncovers secrets of her childhood.

More news as we get it.
