From Guy Adams, the incredibly talented author who gave us the stunning Kronos novel a few months back comes another re-telling of a Hammer movie classic, Hands Of The Ripper.
On a cold, wet night recently widowed psychology lecturer John Pritchard visits spiritualist Aida Golding with his son. Although wary something has driven him here. And he is drawn to a troubled young woman who is trying to contact her child. Something about her intrigues him and despite his doubts he continues to attend meetings.
One night at an intimate séance in Aida's house the lights go out and one of the group is brutally murdered. John has his suspicions but he can't prove anything. He senses that Aida has some hold over the girl and he offers her a place of refuge in his home. But the past haunts Anna in the most chilling of ways. And all too soon John realises he's made a terrible mistake...
Written with care and style, Adams has given this Horror Channel favourite a new lease of life and continues a stunning series of books that cleverly give these true classics a new updated lease of life.
