Publisher's Summary

Cult horror director Stanislas Cordova hasn't been seen in public since 1971. When his daughter Ashley is found dead in a believed suicide, journalist Scott McGrath is not convinced. For McGrath, another death connected to the legendary director seems more than a coincidence. Driven by revenge, curiosity and a need for the truth, he finds himself pulled into a hypnotic, disorientating world which begins to threaten his grip on reality.

literary masterpiece mystery

What did you love best about Night Film?

It wasn't until the book was finished that I truly appreciated it for what it was: a literary masterpiece. The prose was sublime, never overblown with self importance, but succinct and perfect in it's short descriptive phrases. It was not a thriller or a suspense novel but it was a true mystery which in itself was really never resolved except in it's telling, so beautifully by the author and brilliantly told by Jake Weber.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was Cordova who changed in the telling from horrific murderer, to loving father and back again and was always a mystery, remaining so.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was transformed by this book, rather than moved, much like the main character, McGrath, who the story was narrated through, and everybody who came in contact with Cordova. The story hooked me, more and more, as I listened until the end, which, although unresolved was nevertheless complete.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys really good writing and an intelligent mystery. Not your everyday paperback thriller !!

- Janie "I am an artist, living in Cairns, Queensland, Australia right next to the Great Barrier Reef. I listen to audiobooks everyday while making art and on into the night. I really like mysteries with a good serving of suspense on the side that keep you wondering right to the end. However, I won't say no to any entertaining and well written book which has been read by an excellent narrator."
