About this item

Brilliant, haunting, breathtakingly suspenseful, Night Film is a superb literary thriller by the New York Times bestselling author of the blockbuster debut Special Topics in Calamity Physics.

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.

For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence. Though much has been written about Cordova's dark and unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself.

Driven by revenge, curiosity, and a need for the truth, McGrath, with the aid of two strangers, is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordova's eerie, hypnotic world.

The last time he got close to exposing the director, McGrath lost his marriage and his career. This time he might lose even more.

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.

Advance praise for Night Film

"Beautifully imagined, beautifully written, and hypnotically suspenseful".--Lee Child, author of A Wanted Man

"A testament to Marisha Pessl's tremendous gifts as a storyteller".--Scott Smith, author of The Ruins

"This summer's Gone Girl: a completely absorbing literary thriller".-- Library Journal

"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

"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".-- Kirkus Reviews

"Expands from a seemingly straightforward mystery into a multifaceted, densely byzantine exploration of much larger issues... Into this mazelike world of dead ends and false leads, McGrath ventures with his two, much younger helpers, Nora and Hopper, brilliantly portrayed Holmesian 'irregulars' who may finally understand more about Ashley than their mentor, whose linear approach to fact finding might miss the point entirely".-- Booklist (starred review)

Praise for Special Topics in Calamity Physics

"A whirling, glittering, multifaceted marvel... an irrepressibly smart and flamboyant new voice".-- The New York Times

"Pessl's talent for verbal acrobatics keeps the pages flipping".-- USA Today

"[A] blockbuster debut".-- People (Critic's Choice)
