Red Hands: A Novel
Fans of Christopher Golden first got to meet Ben Walker in the bestselling Ararat, and now Walker is back for his final tale in Red Hands.
In a brutal opening chapter, the reader is taken to a Fourth of July parade, which is ripped asunder when a car speeds out of control. A disoriented man gets out and begins reaching out to people with his hands. Every person he touches undergoes some strange attack in less than a minute and then, after a few more minutes, falls to the ground dead. Somehow, his strange and deadly affliction is passed to a local woman, Maeve Sinclair. She flees the scene in terror while the survivors are left in shock as people in hazmat gear arrive who seem to know a lot more about what’s going on.
Ben Walker is brought in to find Maeve before anyone else does. It’s a race against time and survival for him, for Maeve, and for those who want to get hold of her. Golden does what he did in the previous two Walker novels, keeping readers glued to the page, both wondering and dreading what will happen next.
