Night Film/Marisha Pessl/602 pgs./January Challenge
I have both thanked and cursed Cindy B. for bringing this book to my attention. I thanked her because it sucks you in right from the beginning, and I cursed her because I stayed up reading it until I thought my eyes would fall out! It begins with the death of Ashley Cordova, daughter of the reclusive horror film director, Stanislas Cordova. Ashley's death is ruled a suicide, but investigative reporter Scott McGrath is convinced there is more to her death than meets the eye. It's a psychological thriller in the vein of an Alfred Hitchcock movie--it keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat! Highly recommended!
