The Small Hand Paperback / softback

Part of the Susan Hill's Ghost Stories series

Paperback / softback


NOW A MAJOR TV DRAMALate one summer evening, antiquarian bookseller Adam Snow is returning from a client visit when he takes a wrong turn.

He stumbles across a derelict Edwardian house, and compelled by curiosity, approaches the door.

Standing before the entrance, he feels the unmistakable sensation of a small cold hand creeping into his own, 'as if a child had taken hold of it'.

At first he is merely puzzled by the odd incident but then begins to suffer attacks of fear and panic, and is visited by nightmares.

He is determined to learn more 'about the house and its once-magnificent, now overgrown garden but when he does so, he receives further, increasingly sinister, visits from the small hand.
