From the New York Times bestselling author of Special Topics in Calamity Physics comes a brilliant and haunting literary thriller, Night Film.
On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova—a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.
“This summer’s Gone Girl: a completely absorbing literary thriller.”
“Get ready to talk about this book.”
“An inventive . . . adventure in literary terror. Think Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King meet Guillermo del Toro as channeled by Klaus Kinski.”
“Expands from a seemingly straightforward mystery into a multifaceted, densely byzantine exploration of much larger issues.”
