Little Hands Clapping

(2010)
A novel by

 
 
In a room above a bizarre German museum, and far from the prying eyes of strangers, lives the Old Man. Caretaker of the museum by day, by night he enjoys the sound of silence, broken by the occasional crunch of a spider between his blackened teeth. Little Hands Clapping brings together the Old Man with the respectable Doctor Ernst Frohlicher, his greedy dog Hans and a cast of grotesque and hilarious townsfolk, all of whose lives are thrown together as the town uncovers a crime so outrageous that it will shock the world. From its sinister opening to its explosive denouement, Little Hands Clapping blends lavishly entertaining storytelling with Rhodes's macabre imagination, entrancing originality and magical touch.

Genre: Horror

Praise for this book

"Dan Rhodes is totally sick and brilliant in all the right ways. He sucks you into his world and before you know it, you're willingly trapped. So very smart. I loved it." - Douglas Coupland
