Her long awaited second novel Night Film is about the thin line between fact and fiction.
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. He has been following the Cordova family for years, and is obsessed with Stanislas Cordova, the legendary, reclusive cult-horror-film and Ashley’s father. The movie rights to Night Film have been bought by Chernin Entertainment. Rupert Wyatt, director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, will direct the film.
