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

The severed hand

The severed hand


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.
