Night Film: A Novel
Night Film: A Novel
by Marisha Pessl
Expected publication: August 20th 2013 by Random House

The critically acclaimed author of Special Topics in Calamity Physics, which People hailed as a “blockbuster debut,” returns with a brilliant, breathtakingly suspenseful literary thriller, Night Film.

On a damp October night, beautiful, young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Her death is ruled a suicide, but veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding her death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of Ashley’s father: cult horror film director Stanislas Cordova. Rumored to be shuttered away in a remote Adirondack estate, Cordova remains an enigma. Though much has been written about his unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself. With the help of two strangers, McGrath is slowly drawn into Cordova’s eerie, hypnotic world as he pieces together the answers: What really happened to Ashley? Who is Cordova? And once we face our deepest fears-what lies on the other side?

Night Film, the gorgeously written, spellbinding new novel by the dazzlingly inventive Marisha Pessl, will hold you in suspense until you turn the final page.
I’ve been eager for this one back when it still had only a single line blurb. It sounds amazing and like something I’m sure to love.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    I just adore these old school detective novels. Investigative journalist, huh? Well, combine that with beautiful writing and you get something that's too good to pass. I'm adding this to my tbr. 🙂

  2. Oh wow Bonnie I've never heard of this book before, but I agree it does sound fantastic, I like the sound of the mystery behind the story! I think this is definitely one I'll be adding to my tbr! Thanks for putting it on my radar! 🙂

    This sounds so full of win, I can't wait. I've heard there are pictures too so a physical copy will be absolutely necessary.
