Robert Bateman – The Hands Of Orlac (Four Square, 1961)

Inner blurb
Brilliant surgery after a disastrous aeroplane crash restored Steven Orlof’s hands – the hands of a world-famous concert pianist. Slowly his skill at the piano returned to him, but there were puzzling oddities.

Were his hands larger, clumsier than before the accident? But serious burns and plastic surgery could account for that.

Those scars around his wrists? The result of skin grafts, perhaps.

Or was it something more dramatic than skin grafting, something uncanny, haunting, even deadly?
