In 2009, Lindsay Bach was a recent college grad with a great magazine job and a group of hard-partying friends who used a Bushwick loft as the setting for their epic get-togethers. But the group is torn apart after one of Lindsay’s friends is found dead next to a suicide note.

Years later, Lindsay discovers a disturbing video that forces her to question whether her friend’s death was indeed a suicide – and worse, whether or not she had something to do with it. The young journalist begins her own investigation into what happened and is surprised by the results.

The Lost Night (Crown Publishing, February 26, 2019), the debut novel by Andrea Bartz, centers on a young woman who discovers a video that forces her to relive the tragic death of one of her close friends in order to uncover the truth of what really happened.
