Thriller and Suspense

LoveReading View on Nocturnal Animals Official Film Tie-in Originally Published as Tony and Susan

A novel within a novel…a masterpiece of brilliance that will dazzle you.  Tony and Susan is an eerie, riveting novel of reading and writing, fear and regret, blood and revenge... It is simultaneously a riveting portrayal of the experience of reading and a page-turning thriller, written in startlingly arresting prose. It is also a novel about fear and regret, revenge and aging, marriage and creativity. It is simply unique.

Sarah Broadhurst

Nocturnal Animals Official Film Tie-in Originally Published as Tony and Susan Synopsis

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.
