Ever since she lost her hand, Rachel's dreams have transformed into nightmares, but she's also experiencing strange, phantasmal sensations in her waking hours in James Brogden's supernatural thriller, The Hollow Tree. With Brogden's new novel haunting shelves on March 13th courtesy of Titan Books, we've been provided with three paperback copies to give away to lucky Daily Dead readers.

The Hollow Tree synopsis: "After losing her hand in a tragic accident, Rachel is plagued by vivid nightmares of a hollow tree, and a hand reaching from it, begging her for help. Terrified that she is going mad, Rachel experiences phantom sensations of leaves, trees, and finally a hand that grasps hers and pulls a young woman into Rachel’s world. She has no idea of who she is, but Rachel can’t help but think of the local legend of Oak Mary, the corpse of a woman found hidden in a hollow tree, and who was never identified. Three myths have grown up around the body; was she a spy, a prostitute or a murdered gypsy? Rachel is desperate to learn the truth, but darker forces are at work. For a rule has been broken, and Mary is in a world where she doesn’t belong...
