Synopsis

Nocturnal Animals Official Film Tie-in Originally Published as Tony and Susan by Austin Wright

The novel that inspired the 2016 major motion picture Nocturnal Animals, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams, is a dazzling, eerie, riveting thriller of fear and regret, blood and revenge.

Many years after their divorce, Susan Morrow receives a strange gift from her ex-husband. A manuscript that tells the story of a terrible crime: an ambush on the highway, a secluded cabin in the woods; a thrilling chiller of death and corruption. How could such a harrowing story be told by the man she once loved? And why, after so long, has he sent her such a disturbing and personal message...? Originally published as Tony and Susan.

Reviews

Absorbing, terrifying, beautiful and appalling. I loved it... Unforgettable -- Ruth Rendell A superb and thrilling novel... Extraordinary -- Ian McEwan Tony and Susan is unbeatable. I was bowled over by this disturbing, bold novel Observer A f***king masterpiece. I wish that Wright was still alive so that I could tell him so... It's going to become a living, breathing, knock-out classic. Astonishing -- MJ Hyland Astute, cunning and thrilling in equal measure, this is one lost novel that deserves to be found by a whole new generation of readers Independent on Sunday I want to read it all over again... Not since Cormac McCarthy's The Road have I been so gripped and unsettled by a piece of fiction -- Sarah Waters Marvellously written - the last thing you would expect in a story of blood and revenge. Beautiful -- Saul Bellow Compelling... Mesmerizing... Absolutely irresistible New York Times A nail-biter and a penetrating portrait of guilt and revenge Sunday Times
