Best-selling author of The Woman In Black, Susan Hill is on top form with this chilling ghost story about a book dealer who comes across a derelict old house and suddenly feels an invisible child’s hand in his own. Determined to learn more, he uncovers the tale of family tragedy and events begin to take a sinister turn. Hill’s tale maintains the tension to the very end.

The Small Hand Synopsis

This is the chilling tale of a man in the grip of a small, invisible hand...A ghost story by the author of The Woman in Black and The Man in the Picture , to be read by the fire on a cold winter's night. Returning home from a visit to a client late one summer's evening, antiquarian bookseller Adam Snow takes a wrong turning and stumbles across the derelict old White House. Compelled by curiosity, he approaches the door, and, standing before the entrance feels the unmistakeable sensation of a small hand creeping into his own, 'as if a child had taken hold of it'. Intrigued by the encounter, he determines to learn more, and discovers that the owner's grandson had drowned tragically many years before. At first unperturbed by the odd experience, Snow begins to be plagued by haunting dreams, panic attacks, and more frequent visits from the small hand which become increasingly threatening and sinister...
