A chilling, deeply creepy Hammer novella by Joanna Briscoe, author of the acclaimed, bestselling novel, Sleep With Me. Rowena Crale and her family have moved from London. They now live in a small English village in a cottage which seems to be resisting all attempts at renovation. Walls ooze damp, stains come through layers of wallpaper, celings sag. And strange noises - voices - emanate from empty rooms. As Rowena struggles with the upheaval of builders while trying to be a dutiful wife and a good mother to her young children, her life starts to disintegrate. And then, one by one, her daughters go missing ...

"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 *
