Errol LeCale – The Severed Hand (New English Library, 1974)

The severed hand

The severed hand

Blurb:

The fingers crept smoothly round the man’s thick throat, not wakening him. And when they were in position they closed like a vice.As the body thrashed his hands clutched at the strangling hand , sought for a grip on the arm , the body that was murdering him. But there was no arm , no body. There was only a hand , a strangling hand that gripped tighter and tighter. For the Specialist and his two assistants this was a case that led them to face dangers as great as they were inexpilicable in terms of anything Eli Podgram had ever known of in the Twilight World. This was a time when they learned to live with horror.

Thanks to Killercrab for providing the scan and back cover blurb.
