On a damp October night, the body of young, beautiful Ashley Cordova is found in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. By all appearances her death is a suicide--but investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. Though much has been written about the dark and unsettling films of Ashley's father, Stanislas Cordova, very little is known about the man himself. As McGrath pieces together the mystery of Ashley's death, he is drawn deeper and deeper into the dark underbelly of New York City and the twisted world of Stanislas Cordova, and he begins to wonder--is he the next victim? In this novel, the dazzlingly inventive writer Marisha Pessl offers a breathtaking mystery that will hold you in suspense until the last page is turned.

Editorial Reviews

“Get ready to talk about this book.”—Entertainment Weekly “A literary mystery that’s also a page-turner . . . Night Film might be the most talked-about novel this summer.”—Time Out New York “A sprawling but intricate thriller. . . .Pessl’s writing is confident and joyful.” —The Globe and Mail“Reading this book is like sitting in a movie theater in wraparound darkness, feeling a deep chill that's part air conditioning, part anticipation. A lovely, granular black-and-white quality haunts the novel.” —Meg Wolitzer, author of The Interestings “A testament to Marisha Pessl’s tremendous gifts as a storyteller.”—Scott Smith, author of The Ruins  “Beautifully imagined, beautifully written, and hypnotically suspenseful.”—Lee Child, author of A Wanted Man“A brilliant, haunting, and breathtakingly suspenseful literary thriller. . .”—The Fayetteville Observer “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.”—Bookish“Every year there is a “must read” book released. This year it is Marisha Pessl’s second novel, ‘Night Film.’ A complete and satisfying novel that plumbs the depths of our psyches and leads us through tunnels of darkness in search of light. Pessl is a brilliant new author who should be appreciated.”—The Florida Times-Union  “An inventive—if brooding, strange and creepy—adventure in literary terror. Think Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King meet Guillermo del Toro as channeled by Klaus Kinski. In her sophomore effort, Pessl hits the scary ground running.” —Kirkus Reviews
