“Red Hands” by Christopher Golden is the third in a series of thrillers centered around the character of “weird science expert” Ben Walker, but you don’t need to have read the other books to get a feel for the character.
This book starts off at a small town 4th of July celebration. Out of nowhere, a car barrels through the crowd striking Maeve Sinclair’s father before crashing.
The driver manages to climb out, but starts staggering towards others around him, his touch instantly and brutally killing them.
Scared, she heads for the nearby mountains, and Walker is called in to track her and bring her back alive.
The problem? Maeve is apparently infected with a deadly bioweapon that was being developed at a nearby government facility. One that everyone wants to get their hands on…whether she’s alive or not…so Walker isn’t the only one searching for her.
And the chase is on…
It took awhile for “Red Hands” to really grab me. There are a lot of separate pieces of this puzzle that all had to be introduced. Once all the players were on the board, and the mountain hunt for Maeve got underway, the book really came together as a fast exciting read.
There are a couple of interesting twists, and several deaths – some quite gruesome. Towards the end, the story takes a huge jump as it’s revealed exactly what that bioweapon is.
I would classify “Red Hands” by Christopher Golden as a horror thriller, and I’m giving it 4 stars out of 5.
