We love a good crime mystery. Agatha Christie, the queen of crime, is one of our favourites. We can’t wait for Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming Murder on the Orient Express. Now Amazon Prime has revealed they have seven Agatha Christie adaptations in the works.

The first of these seven adaptations will be Ordeal by Innocence. So what’s the book about?

Evidence that clears the name of a boy sentenced for killing his adopted mother arrives too late to save his life – so who did kill her? Dr. Arthur Calgary takes a ferry across the Rubicon River to Sunny Point, the home of the Argyle family.

A year before, the matriarch of the family was murdered and a son, Jack, was convicted and sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Throughout the trial Jack had maintained his innocence, claiming he was hitchhiking on the night of the murder and he had been picked up by a middle-aged man in a dark car. Unable to locate this mystery man the police viewed Jack's as a lie. Calgary was the stranger in question, but he arrives too late for Jack – who succumbs to pneumonia after serving just six months of his sentence.

Feeling a sense of duty to the Argyles, Calgary is surprised when his revelation has a disturbing effect on the family – it means one of the family is a murderer…

The three-part miniseries based on the book will star Bill Nighy, Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich) and Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey, The Good Wife).

No news yet on when the miniseries will air but production has begun.
