Publisher's Summary

In his first collection of short fiction, New York Times best-selling author John Connolly offers a selection of dark, daring, and utterly haunting tales. Here are 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", a pair of 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.
In these stories, Connolly ratchets up the tension to almost unbearable - and irresistible - levels. Nocturnes is a deliciously chilling collection from "one of the best thriller writers we have" (Harlan Coben).

Great story- but some suggestions

Loved this collection. As with other audible collected works though, it would be nice if the chapters often book indicated what story they are related to. If you only listen once, great, you'll never notice. But why then would you buy the book?

This version is also missing the last four stories found in the print volume.
