Five books ripe for silver screen adaptations

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five books ready to be brought to the silver screen:
Mr. Peanut
by Adam Ross

If Christopher Nolan or Vince Gilligan are looking for their next gritty existentialist noir, they need look no further than Adam Ross's clever and surreal enigma, built around the foggy death of a young woman who may have been killed by her husband - and whose case is investigated by one sleuth who wants to murder his own wife, and another once wrongly accused of doing so. A narrative fortune cookie with Hitchcockian overtones.
Read about another entry on the list.
