Rutherford Manor – a safe haven for some. For others, a home that holds many sinister secrets.

Headmaster Alastor Flesher and his business partner, Spalding Savidge, find themselves in desperate times to provide for their families.
Their needs wrap them into a deal with the Irish mob – The White Hand. The two men willingly work with the gang as resurrectionists, obtaining bodies for anatomists. Alastor and Spalding develop a unique process, gaining access to the most well-preserved bodies. Their product becomes desirable throughout the black market in Illinois.

A compelling tale of Humanity and Horror!
The White Hand is a great introduction to the universe of the Flesher and Savidge clans and the other denizens of Rutherford Manor.
For generations, the Flesher’s and the Savidge’s had been societal outcasts due to their reclusiveness and half hinted at dark obsessions. The novel “The White Hand” peels back the shroud and tells the tales of the last members of the two families as they strive to succeed in a world that seems to distrust and revile them, often resorting to unsavoury means to put food on the table and money in their pockets. Switching between first and third person narratives along with a healthy dose of internal monologues a complex, disturbing tale is told that draws you in from the first words and refuses to release you from their grip until the very last act. An immersive story that hints at far greater thrills to come.
“The White Hand” is A must-read for anyone who loves anything in the fantasy, horror, history, mystery or the supernatural genres.
One of the best books I’ve read in years!
Such an amazing book! I found myself getting lost in the story like I was right there with the characters experiencing what they seen and felt. Dark and sensual. Macabre and soulful. It’s everything you need in a thriller novel and more!
Do yourself a favour and read!
The White hand is an excellent read from cover to cover! An exciting look into the mindset of such a dark family. Well done!
Read this in two sittings. Great read, lays out the foundations for the characters and story. By the time I got to the end, I was completely engrossed in the world of the Flesher’s and Savidge’s world. Can’t wait for the next book to see what happens next.
I full on just spent 3 hours in the tub so I could read this (almost) uninterrupted and now I’m going to stay up to read it again.
This book is amazing and I love it and I need a sequel.
If ya’ll haven’t read his books yet, get to it!
