The hand

The Hand: It is difficult to say much about this complex story without giving the plot away.

Neighbours know each other in ways that are more intimate than families, and the garden fence is no boundary to borrowing or sharing personal items, or even one’s life.

Although The hand fits comfortably in our CrimeWithoutGrime series, it was once entitled Neighbours.¬†No doubt you will see why once you listen to it.¬†While it is true you can’t choose your family, you can choose your friends, and in some ways you can choose your neighbours. And while friendship with neighbours is a wonderful thing, it is also fraught with problems.
