Night Film

I don’t read too many adult books but this one was recommended to me as a good mystery. Night Film by Marisha Pessl is a mystery thriller that keeps you reading and intrigued without being too scary.

indexOn 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.

 Cordova’s dedicated followers are extreme in their devotion, to say the least, which makes every encounter that McGrath has an intriguing one. I actually enjoyed this story and one of the most interesting things about it were the Websites/pictures/articles (all fictitious of course) that were dispersed throughout the story to give it a more realistic feel. A great read!
