Marisha Pessl, author of Night Film

Ashley Cordova’s death is ruled a suicide, but 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. For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence.
