A Book Trailer: "What You See in the Dark"

Posted By on Wed, Jun 15, 2011 at 9:05 AM

Tucson author Manuel Munoz's new book, What You See in the Dark, gets the book-trailer treatment. Looks mucho noir.

A collection of rave reviews for the book:

“[A] stellar first novel…with a subtlety worthy of Hitchcock himself.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Muñoz has hit upon a killer premise: the making of Psycho set against a real-life murder.”
—Booklist

“Manuel Muñoz’s vividly suspenseful first novel is a fine blend of Hitchcock’s chilly elegance and the sordid passions of James M. Cain: a dark, intimate, heartbreaking tale about four very different women, each one longing to escape the confines of her everyday life through the romantic illusions concocted by Hollywood. Their voices will haunt me for some time to come.”
—Julia Glass, author of The Widower’s Tale and Three Junes

“A powerful portrait…What You See in the Dark is a gem, full of drama and keen social observation, worthy of a movie treatment of its own. It’s imbued with the noir sensibility of James Cain’s The Postman Always Rings Twice and Mildred Pierce.”
—Edmonton Journal

“What You See in the Dark strikes emotional chords so deep and with such precision, it almost makes you believe you’ve discovered a new art form.”
—Austin Chronicle
