Jennifer Lopez will star in a Netflix feature film, an adaptation of Isabella Maldonado’s novel The Cipher.

She will don the role of FBI agent Nina Guerrero who finds herself drawn into a serial killer’s case after he strategically posts complex codes and riddles online corresponding to recent murders in order to lure her into a cat-and-mouse chase.

Award-winning author Isabella Maldonado wore a gun and badge in real life before writing crime fiction. A graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico and the first Latina in her department to attain the rank of captain, she commanded the Special Investigations and Forensics Division before retiring after twenty-two years on the force.
