With a deftness that is sharp and painful, Hurley entices you into the terrified and confused mind of his heroine. This spooky novel is utterly gripping.
Michael Hartland, Daily Telegraph.
Deliciously spooky story from a writer who excels in the dark side of life. Lots of splendid twists in this nightmarish tale.
Intricate, pacy and thrilling - this is a book to keep you awake all night, even after you have finished it.

Nocturne does a trickily clever job of leading you up alleys and by-ways that turn out to have unexpected twists ahead. It's a thriller that is never quite what it seems, a smoke-and-mirrors job that keeps you tearing through the pages to find out what happens next.
Alex Gordon, Peterborough Evening Telegraph.
Just when you think you can relax, Hurley rolls you through another loop in the rollercoaster ride of his plot. It's a story that grabs you from the first line. With his flair for topicality, Hurley has produced a novel that is disconcertingly immediate.
Andrew Baldwin, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
Hurley, who writes Nocturne in the first person as Julie, proves again why he's one of Britain's finest writing talents. A dark, disturbing book which enthrals until the very last page.
Yorkshire Evening Press
A stunning novel, extremely well-written in an easily-readable style - completely unputdownable.
