In the darkest corners of hypnotic control who can say what is and is not possible? Eight women went obediently to their deaths with the Handshaker. Were they hypnotised? When another victim commits suicide, hypnotist Alex Croft believes he has the answer. Then The Handshaker takes Croft’s girlfriend and the game changes. A puppet dancing to killer’s tune, Croft is first the hunter, then in a dramatic turn of events, the hunted, running from the law, desperate to find this madman before he can kill again, brought face to face with his own mortality in a nerve-jangling finale. A dark and gritty thriller set in the North of England. The Handshaker: to take his hand is to invite death.
