Giveaway Opportunity: NIGHT FILM by Marisha Pessl

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Pessl_Night Film“GET READY TO TALK ABOUT THIS BOOK.”*

Enter for a chance to win a free advance copy of NIGHT FILM: “this summer’s Gone Girl: a completely absorbing literary thriller,”** the long-awaited second novel from Marisha Pessl, author of the New Yorker Times bestseller 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.
