A decade after Nocturnes first terrified and delighted listeners, John Connolly, best-selling author of 13 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.
Night Music also contains two novellas: the multiaward-winning The Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository and The Fractured Atlas, featuring The Wanderer in Unknown Realms, previously published as an ebook, developed here into a five-part novella. Night Music: Nocturnes 2 is a masterly collection to be listened to with the lights on. Menace has never been so seductive.

Some real gems, but I do not think the decision to use different voice actors for different stories is all that successful - save for chapter 4 where it works really well. In chapter 13 Jeff Harding draws you right into the story in his customary way. A shame about the narration for the Fractured Atlas sections, because I really liked story - the performances, not so much. If you've read all of the Charlie Parker novels it's worth a read on a dark winters night and your at a loose end.
Unsure yet. May need another listen. Found my mind turning off. The first one really held me hooked.
Not keen on some
