LAST WIFE TO DIE

 Q: Pitch (im)perfect – This week, you’re pitching the worst idea for a crime, mystery or thriller novel that you can think of – give us your synopsis.

-from a desperately determined Susan 



So, okay, picture this: POTUS and chief advisor, his former golf caddy, go up against deep state…oh, that’s been done? 




Okay, how about Clarisse Starling fights off a deadly virus to protect ailing POTUS stranded in motorcade…oh, you’ve heard that one too? Is someone stealing my material?




Listen to this. Guaranteed to sell a million copies: A troubled female FBI agent and lousy mother who’s in recovery from drugs and alcohol and divorce from her abusive but endearing husband, a former cop who’s gone over to the dark side, is assigned to a missing kid case. And, wait for it, the missing kid is hers! And the bad guy who’s following her in a black SUV with tinted windows and putting sand in her car’s gas pipe every night may just be her ex! And the head of the FBI has the hots for her, and pushes her to move to Langley so they can see each other more often when he can get away from his sick (but not never going to die) wife. Oh, and she has an emotionally damaged dog named Wolf who loves her but wants to rip the throats of everyone else out and plays a big role in the climax. I’m thinking Jennifer Lopez for the lead. 


Killer title: LAST WIFE TO DIE


SO, what do you think?

Thanks, fellas. Now, if any of you has a connection to someone in Hollywood, there's no limit to how big this could be. Finder's fee...

Sounds like a blockbuster. It'll come down to who you get to play the dog.
