Propriétaire d'une galerie d'art à Los Angeles, Susan Morrow mène une vie professionnelle sans passion, tandis que son mari Hutton, homme d'affaires, la trompe avec d'autres femmes. Un jour, elle reçoit le manuscrit d'un roman écrit par son ex-mari Edward Sheffield accompagné d'une invitation lors d'une prochaine visite de ce dernier à Los Angeles. Susan commence la lecture du roman intitulé Animaux nocturnes (Nocturnal Animals dans la version originale), qu'il lui a dédié, en nommant le livre d'après un surnom qu'il lui avait donné. Le livre débute quand le personnage principal, Tony Hastings, part sur la route en voiture en vacances avec son épouse Laura et leur fille India, quand un soir ils sont contraints de s'arrêter sur une route de l'ouest du Texas par un groupe de trois voyous locaux, menés par Ray Marcus. Après un échange animé entre les Hastings et Marcus, ce dernier et ses amis emmènent de force Laura et India, face à l'impuissance de Tony, qui doit accompagner Lou, l'un des trois amis de Marcus, jusqu'au bout d'une route où il est abandonné. Lorsque Lou et Ray tentent de le retrouver, Tony parvient à se cacher et à se rendre dans une ferme des environs afin d'appeler la police. Choquée par le contenu sombre et l'émotion brute du roman, Susan se remémore sa rencontre avec Edward et de son mariage avec ce dernier, union à laquelle était opposée la mère de Susan, Anne Sutton, affirmant qu'Edward n'était pas digne des affections de Susan et que, à cause de sa vision romantique du monde, il manquait de volonté pour atteindre ses objectifs. Susan, découvrant l'infidélité d'Hutton, continue la lecture du roman.
