A creepy story as we follow a journalist investigating the death of a reclusive horror film director’s daughter. Told in various narratives which include newspaper reports, police records, on-line blogs and all sorts, plus outlines of the director’s work, this is an extraordinary book. Compelling and fast-moving, if you are happy with its disjointed nature, it has the feel of a horror movie unfolding. Very clever. You should download the decoder app (details appear in the book) too so you can scan over some of the images in the text for extra features both video and audio. The whole thing is quite an experience, best read in a physical edition as some of the added material doesn’t work well on screen.

Win a signed copy of stunning debut Blue Light Yokohama

Synopsis

Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Cult horror director Stanislas Cordova hasn't been seen in public since 1971. To his fans he is an enigma. To journalist Scott McGrath he is the enemy. To Ashley he was a father. On a damp October night the young, beautiful Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Her suicide appears to be the latest tragedy to hit a severely cursed dynasty. For McGrath, another death connected the legendary director seems more than coincidence. Driven by revenge, curiosity and a need for the truth, he finds himself pulled into a hypnotic, disorientating world, where almost everyone seems afraid. The last time McGrath got close to exposing Cordova, he lost his marriage and his career. This time he could lose his grip on reality.

Reviews

'Deliciously spine-tingling... all-consuming and mind-altering. Nothing else matters while there are pages to turn and, once the book is over, the world seems an emptier place' - Daily Telegraph

'Using mixed media, Pessl tell the tale of an eccentric, Kubrick-like film director and the mysterious deaths that litter his past.' - Grazia

'Beautifully imagined, beautifully written, and hypnotically suspenseful.' -- Lee Child
