Title: The Other Hand
Author: Chris Cleave
Sceptre, 2009 (2008)

It has been a while since I read this one by now, but something that stands out is the exceptionally well-crafted introduction, which is a rare thing! The blurb on the back is cryptic to say the least, but suffice to say it envolves corporate greed in a faraway land, a chopped of finger, and a child who claims to be Batman. The novel is fine if you find yourself in the literary off-season with nothing to read, but, unfortunately, the story does not match the fantastic intro, so you are bound to be at least a bit disappointed.
