The story centers around the Argyll family, torn apart by adopted son Jacko’s conviction of his mother’s murder. After Jacko’s death, a mysterious man appears claiming he was innocent, opening old wounds and begging the question: who is the real killer?

 

Morgan Wandell, head of international series at Amazon Studios told The Hollywood Reporter, “we are thrilled to bring to our slate these adaptations from the world’s greatest mystery writer. With terrific talent, in front of and behind the camera, they are sure to delight our customers.”

 

We can’t wait to sink our teeth into this juicy mystery and the others set to follow it!
