Publisher's Summary

Once when Benet was about fourteen they had been in a train together, alone in the carriage, and Mopsa had tried to stab her with a carving knife. It was some time now since Benet had seen her mad mother, and when Mopsa arrived at Heathrow, looking drab and colourless in a dowdy grey suit, Benet tried not to hate her. A death in the family precipitates a series of intertwined events - kidnap, murder, deception, and an overwhelming sense of guilt and yearning. A sense that is strongly identified with a bizarre collage in a hospital ward... The Tree of Hands. Mopsa, driven by a past scarred by madness and violence. Benet, stricken by the most grievous loss any woman can bear. Carol, trapped in a life of crushing drabness no lover can change. Three mothers joined by a single thread of terror, whirled into a spiral of kidnapping, murder, and a final, reckless affirmation of love.

    "Good story, well read"

    Ruth Randell's stories are a bit on the creepy side and this one is no exception. It's dark, compelling and has a fast pace.

    "Confusing narration"

    Didn't meet my expectations. Expected some thing to happen that never did. Narration did not make any effort to alter voice for different characters so hard to know who was speaking.
