Publisher's Summary

A withered, shriveled, severed human hand is kept chained in a corner. The "owner" of this morbid trophy always keeps three loaded revolvers in the same room. Nothing seems too suspicious until the hand is mysteriously reclaimed.

Just a scary story

This is not at all a bad short story, but it was a bit predictable. The narration is excellent but this is a rather simple scary story with little else going for it. If you are in the mood for a short campfire story this is not worth a credit, but at $0.58 it was worth the listen.

chilling mystery by a great narrator

the hand is a short story, which delves not into the supernatural as per its words itself but instead to the imaginative and inexplicable. it is is a chilling tale a mystery and as per usual BJ Harrison does a fantastic job in communicating both the facts of the story as well as portraying the narration with the drama and characteristics of the people and activities included within

Spooky Short, Beautifully Performed

This was a wonderful spooky short story about an eerie hand. A classic horror story, beautifully performed by B J Harrison. Very entertaining and definitely worth hearing.
