“Christopher Golden has done it again! RED HANDS is a full-throttle thriller that will leave you breathless. The opening chapter gave me nightmares, and by the time I reached the final page, I was too frightened to turn the lights out.”


New York Times bestselling author of Gwendy’s Magic Feather and The Girl on the Porch
