Publisher's Summary

Late 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. But when he does, he receives further, increasingly sinister, visits from the small hand.

Definitely small

As stories go this was not the most exciting I have ever heard, and I'll probably not listen to it again. I'm not sure if it is the actual story or the narrator that I had problems with although it might be that both combined to make a drab listen. At times the narrator seemed to have an almost monotone to his voice, whilst the story was like being hand lead through a bowl of rather thick porridge. Small is the right word for this listen, small excitement, small plot and small interest are rather on the generous side.

Another great ghost story

I love Susan Hill ghost stories and this is a very good one. I love the fact you can listen to this in one sitting and thus maintain the atmosphere. Dim the lights, close the curtains and prepare to enjoy yourself.
