This is from the back: It was a freak accident. The man had suddenly stepped into the road, and the brakes had failed. Clare could only steer wildly, the car finally crashes into a tree and on to the kerb. Now her brother Rob was dead, silent in the passenger seat, slumped against the door. He died of massive head injuries. But there was something else, something that at first she couldn't quite grasp, that seemed inexplicable. His right arm was missing. Gone. Someone had taken it. And then some other horrific things happen, when Clare tries to find out what had happened. ROBERT BLOCH: Campbell has a talent for terror - he knows how to give you nightmares when you're still awake... Only a few writers can lay claim to such a level of consummate craftmanship. Superb. This is the chilling best. STEPHEN KING: The climax is one of the most effective sequences in modern horror fiction. Hope this gave you some idea.
