Why should you adapt this book into a TV series? 

One Eye Open is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller that draws heavily on the writer’s own experience as a cop. Centered around a female investigator who has family commitments and a struggling husband, this British Noir feels relevant in today’s world of professional women looking to find the correct work/life balance.

Its compelling characters and universal themes make this title suitable for a TV series adaptation in the vein of Marcella or Happy Valley that could be transposed easily in any country.

What’s the story?  

A high-speed crash leaves a man and woman clinging to life. Neither of them carries ID. Their car has fake number plates. In their luggage: a huge amount of cash.
Who are they? What are they hiding? And what were they running from?
First responder Lynda Hagen can’t begin to prepare herself for just how dangerous things are about to get.
