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.

Having just returned from a trip to Hiroshima, he starts to use jelly made from the prickly ash plant he acquired there in an effort to improve his failing memory. Unhappy about his ex-partner Watson's fictionalisation of the story of Holmes's last case, the fictitious “The Adventure of the Dove Grey Glove”, he hopes to write his own account but is having trouble recalling the details. As Holmes spends time with Roger, showing him how to take care of the bees in the farmhouse's apiary, he comes to appreciate Roger's curiosity and intelligence and develops a paternal liking for him.

The story opens in 2010, with the release of the Afghan War Logs. It then flashes back to 2007, where journalist Daniel Domscheit-Berg meets Australian computer hacker Julian Assange for the first time, at the Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin. Daniel's interest in online activism has led him to Assange, with whom he has corresponded by email. They begin working together on WikiLeaks, a website devoted to releasing information being withheld from the public while retaining anonymity for its sources. Their first major target is a private Swiss bank, Julius Baer, whose Cayman Islands branch has been engaged in illegal activities. Despite Baer's filing of a lawsuit and obtaining an injunction, the judge dissolves the injunction, allowing Julian and Daniel to reclaim the domain name. As their confidence increases, the two push forward in publishing information over the next three years, including secrets on Scientology, revealing Sarah Palin's email account, and the membership list of the British National Party.

On Christmas Eve, hundreds of Christmas elves helm the command centre of Santa Claus's mile-wide, ultra–high-tech sleigh-esque craft, the S-1. The current Santa: Malcolm and the Christmas elves deliver presents to every child in the world using advanced equipment and military precision. These complex operations are micromanaged by Malcolm's oldest son Steve and his obsequious elfin assistant Peter (among thousands of more elves) at mission control underneath the North Pole, while Steve's clumsy and panophobic younger brother Arthur answers the letters to Santa. During a delivery operation, when a child wakes up and almost sees Malcolm, a Christmas elf back in the S-1 inadvertently presses a button, causing a present to fall off a conveyor and go unnoticed.
