When he receives a letter promising him a once-in-a-lifetime story, he jumps at the opportunity. The only thing is, his life is exactly what it might cost him.
The letter is from Reginald Mather, a man who at first seems no more than an eccentric collector of insects, happy to live in isolation on a remote island. But when Ashley finds himself stranded with Mather and unearths the horrific truth behind the collector's past, he is thrown headlong into a macabre nightmare that quickly spirals out of control.
Ashley's life is in danger. . . .
And Mather is not the only enemy. . . .
Gruesome, compelling, and terrifying,The Hand of the Devilwill make you never want to leave the house without bug spray again.
