Prudence Emery and I are delighted that Los Angeles-based The Ponti Company has acquired movie and TV rights to Death at the Savoy, even before its publication May 28. Here’s what producers Sasha Alexander-Ponti and Edoardo Ponti had to say about the acquisition:

“The moment we read ‘Death at the Savoy‘ we were immediately charmed and inspired by the humor, style and page turning quality of the storytelling but also completely smitten with an amazing ensemble cast of fascinating and hilarious characters led by the colorful and charismatic young female protagonist.

“Prudence and Ron have written a book that speaks to the global audiences’ desire to immerse themselves in a world with glamour and history as they take you through the twists and turns of an irresistible murder mystery.  We are so thrilled to partner with them both in bringing this series to life.”

As we’ve always said, “Good girls go to heaven. Bad girls go to the movies.”
