About this deal

Argylle was announced in June 2021, with Matthew Vaughn attached to direct and produce for Marv Studios.

Like the book and author are fictional characters in the movie and the book is being released in conjunction as a promotional tactic. Jackson appearing alongside Howard — featured a Scottish fold in a backpack, an image that is essential to Swiftian iconography.It doesn’t end on too much of a cliffhanger but it’s definitely set up to leave another story to be told. When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the ‘50s,” director Matthew Vaughn ( Kingsman franchise, X-Men: First Class) gushed when the project was announced in August 2021.

If you love movies like James Bond, Die Hard, Mission Impossible, Indiana Jones and other actionpacked movies, than Argylle is definitely a book for you.That huge figure sparked speculation that the author might actually be someone very high profile, using a different name. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

hastily recruited and poorly trained CIA agents, hidden Nazi treasure, Russian politicians, assassins, double agents, missing jewelry, world travel. Novels don’t usually get going with the made-up stuff until you’re past the title page, but the author biography at the start of Argylle is hokum. I would recommend going into this book with no expectations and you will probably find it to be a super fun read with a fast paced adventure. Either way I wanted to give it a read before seeing the movie and when it became available on my PRH audio app I dove in! It’s frustrating for some to not know who Elly is, but if one thing is certain in the Vaughn universe, it’ll be just as frustrating once we find out.At Vox, we believe that clarity is power, and that power shouldn’t only be available to those who can afford to pay. This isn't my personal preference for books and it takes a truly exceptional read for me to sink in and move past this. The author’s identity is a buzzy mystery far more gripping than novel itself: Is Elly Conway actually Taylor Swift? To save us all from Morgenstern’s highbrow story-killing ways, Goldman concluded, he’d cut the whole thing down to size, and annotated the text helpfully whenever one of his cuts affected the plot.
