From the bestselling author of the Charlie Parker mysteries—”the finest crime series currently in existence” (The Independent)—comes a new anthology of chilling short fiction.

A decade after Nocturnes first terrified and delighted readers, John Connolly, bestselling author of thirteen acclaimed thrillers featuring private investigator Charlie Parker, gives us a second volume of tales of the supernatural. From stories of the monstrous for dark winter nights to fables of fantastic libraries and haunted books, from a tender account of love after death to a frank, personal, and revealing account of the author’s affection for myths of ghosts and demons, this is a collection that will surprise, delight, and terrify.

An official who discovers a disturbing library after his retirement; a marriage that wishes to help his daughter, endowed with alarming powers; a boy who attends a school built next to a cemetery; a young woman who decides to give free rein to her wishes for revenge; a gang of thieves who come to steal in the house of a helpless old lady … 

Night Music: Nocturnes 2 also contains two novellas: the multi-award-winning The Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository and The Fractured Atlas.

Night Music: Nocturnes 2 is a masterly collection to be read with the lights on—menace has never been so seductive.
