"...'Night Film' has been precision-­engineered to be read at high velocity, and its energy would be the envy of any summer blockbuster. Your average writer of thrillers should lust for Pessl’s deft touch with character." - The New York Times Sunday Book Review



The infamous and reclusive cult film director Stanislas Cordova hasn't been seen in public for over 30 years, and when his 24-year-old daughter mysteriously turns up dead, the enigmatic Cordova shrinks further into the shadows. But investigative reporter Scott McGrath, who has a libelous history with the hermit filmmaker, has his suspicions about the circumstances surrounding Ashley Cordova's untimely end.


Scouting out clues in a vividly-painted Manhattan as well as Mr. Cordova's secluded mansion in the Adirondack Mountains, McGrath and his helpers - a friend of Ashley's and the man who was in love with her - find themselves embroiled in a series of eerie twists and turns that play out like an excellent horror film.


Night Film is a spellbinding literary thriller that will keep you guessing well into the autumn months.
