Summary (From the publisher):

The predatory hands belonged - originally - to depraved playboy Matthew Lodway. At his wish - or was it at theirs? - they strangled two people.

But Matthew Lodway was one of triplet brothers. And their father, Virgil Lodway, was a brilliant pioneer of "spare parts" surgery. In those two facts lay the germ of an epidemic of wanton and sadistic murders.

Were these atrocities instigated by the curse of the Little Swami, malign midget demonologist? Or was there an explanation rational enough to satisfy the scientific mind of Virgil Lodway... whose surgical skill reaped an ultimate harvest of bloody horror?

The sinister answer was a secret in the monstrous hands with an evil will of their own.
