Product Details


“A compact, elegantly structured ghost story . . . happens to be one of Hill’s specialties. . . . Like all good British ghost-story writers, Hill believes in meticulous structure and very rough justice. . . . Maybe it’s the uneasy feeling, or maybe it’s the simple pleasure of confident British storytelling craftsmanship, but something pulls you through The Small Hand with relentless urgency. This writer’s grip is vicious.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Thanks to Hill’s deceptively simple plots and straightforward prose, you won’t even notice the noose she’s slipping around your throat.”
The Seattle Times

“Subtle, intelligent, shocking. . . . Shatters nerves with a whisper, not a scream.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A ghost-story duo that may remind many readers of [Stephen] King at his absolute best. . . . Turn on the lights, readers. These tales are the definition of bone chilling.”
Suspense Magazine  

“Masterfully done. . . . Subtle, elegant.”
The Times (London) 
“Spine-tingling fiction.”
The Tattler (London)

“An assuredly chilling ghost story.”
The Guardian (London)
