Summary
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
