Publisher's Summary

Take his hand and follow him into the darkness . . .John Connolly, bestselling author of five brilliantly scary mystery novels, now turns his pen to the short story to give us a dozen 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.
Nocturnes is a masterly volume to be read with the lights on - menace has never been so seductive…

Perfect Match

Fantastic to hear the voices of Angel and Louis. Not as I imagined, but better. Much More of this, please.

I could not finish this beyond the midway point. The stories were uninteresting, unengaging and underdeveloped and I found the narrators voice grating
