Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bestselling author John Connolly's first collection of short fiction, Nocturnes, now features five additional stories — never-before published for an American audience — in a dark, daring, utterly haunting anthology of lost lovers and missing children, predatory demons, and vengeful ghosts.

In "The New Daughter," a father comes to suspect that a burial mound on his land hides something very ancient, and very much alive; in "The Underbury Witches," two London detectives find themselves battling a particularly female evil in a town culled of its menfolk. And finally, private detective Charlie Parker returns in the long novella "The Reflecting Eye," in which the photograph of an unknown girl turns up in the mailbox of an abandoned house once occupied by an infamous killer. This discovery forces Parker to confront the possibility that the house is not as empty as it appears, and that something has been waiting in the darkness for its chance to kill again.

Review:

"In the crowded killing fields of crime fiction John Connolly has quickly and decisively established himself as a unique voice." Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Narrows

Review:

"Hopefully this volume won't be overlooked due to its trade paperback format, but will instead open up Connolly to a new audience, while his longtime fans will find more than enough to keep them entertained." Bookreporter.com

Synopsis:

Featuring a Charlie Parker novella, this is a haunting collection of short fiction by the New York Times bestselling author of Bad Men.
