Connolly writes about darkness and viciousness with an urban intelligence that makes these stories at once terrifying and delightful.
John Connolly is a bestselling novelist of left-field, complex mysteries, with a proven love of the dark side ... if you like to be unsettled then you're in for a treat, as each of the tales twists the classic ghost story in a modern macabre way.
The Beeb has commissioned a couple of flesh-crawling extravaganzas. First the bestselling John Connolly (a man who, when he puts his mind to it, can keep you awake for weeks - believe me, I know) provides a chiller a day until Friday.
Spookier than mere pastiche, meatier than pure pulp, Nocturnes hits exactly the right note in reinventing the golden age of ghost stories.
John Connolly's novels combine the supernatural with straightforward, if ingenious, crime, but his short stories come straight from the bowels of Hell. Enjoy.
Think Edgar Allan Poe's mysteries for the shorter stories, while Connolly's individuality shines through in longer tales.
