Product description


"I read it with great delight. A delicious page-turning treat." (Barbara Trapido)

"Totally wonderful. Touched makes me mindful of Dylan Thomas, it's so poetic and haunting; Joanna Briscoe is a truly lovely writer" (Penny Vincenzi)

"a ghost story interwoven with crime, love and horror. It works on every level….Touched is a finely balanced creation, reminiscent of The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. Briscoe’s prose is sensuous, poetic, light. The rhythm is delicately controlled. A strange, fascinating tale." (Financial Times)

"Touched is a gripping novella, a waking nightmare in the home counties that is both erotic and claustrophobic. There's a woozy atmosphere of menace, a satirical stab at Britain's post-war commuter-belt aspirations, and an elegant, postmodern, cine-literate twist…Touched has something of The Turn of the Screw, certainly, but with it, the brasher influence of Ira Levin, or Anthony Shaffer, screenwriter of The Wicker Man. …This is a haunting and disquieting parable" (Guardian)

"that sense of suffocation and slowly creeping madness is something that Touched - the latest novella from the Hammer horror imprint - expertly mines" (Daily Mail)

"An old fashioned, scary horror story" (Sunday Mirror)

"Haunting novella from Joanna Briscoe…a disorientating ride" (Grazia)

Book Description

A chilling, deeply creepy Hammer novella by Joanna Briscoe, author of the acclaimed, bestselling novel, Sleep With Me.
