Jimmy the Hand is the third and final book in Legends of the Riftwar series by Raymond E. Feist. It details the story of Jimmy, a 13- to 16-year-old thief, who after aiding Prince Arutha and Princess Anita escape Krondor and running afoul of Guy Du Bas-Tyra's secret police has fled south to the town of Land's End. Assuming the villagers have never encountered someone with his talents he becomes fairly optimistic about broadening his horizons, but is unprepared for what greets him. The story is set in the world of Midkemia.

It was first released by Harper Collins on July 7, 2003 in the United Kingdom. It was released in the United States in August 2008.

The book constitutes a kind of prequel to the earlier published The Riftwar Saga, in which (among many other plot lines) the later life of Jimmy is depicted.
