Nocturnes

Nocturnes

Take his hand and follow him into the darkness . . .

John Connolly, bestselling author of seven brilliantly scary mystery novels, now turns his pen to the short story to give us a volume of chilling tales of the supernatural. In this macabre collection, echoing masters of the genre from M R James to Stephen King, Connolly delves into our darkest fears – lost lovers, missing children, subterranean creatures and predatory demons.

Framing the collection are two substantial novellas – THE CANCER COWBOY RIDES charts the fatal progress of a modern-day grim reaper, while THE REFLECTING EYE is a haunted house tale with a twist and marks the return of private detective Charlie Parker, the troubled hero of Connolly’s crime novels. This edition contains two additional stories – THE CYCLE and MR GRAY’S FOLLY – not previously included. NOCTURNES is a masterly volume to be read with the lights on – menace has never been so seductive . . .
