Child 44Before it was published, Ridley Scott bought the film rights to  Child 44, (Hachette/Grand Central), Tom Rob Smith’s heavily promoted debut, set in the 1950’s era Soviet Union. It went on to become a best seller and the author has since completed the trilogy with The Secret Speech (2009) and  Agent 6, (2012).
