Editorial Reviews

Review

''Artfully crafted and absolutely capable of raising the hair on the back of your neck. The Woman in Black is quite as good as any of Edith Wharton's ghost stories.'' --myindividualtake.blogspot.com

Praise for Susan Hill's The Man in the Picture:
''Hill manipulates the gothic darkness of her story with great dexterity and subtlety. . . Her tale is a commendable exercise in the tradition of the antiquarian ghost story.'' --Publishers Weekly

From the Inside Flap

Set in Victorian England, Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor in London, is summoned to Crythin Gifford to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, and to sort through her papers before returning to London. It is here that Kipps first sees the woman in black and begins to gain an impression of the mystery surrounding her. From the funeral he travels to Eel Marsh House and sees the woman again, plus he also hears the terrifying sounds of adult and child passengers sinking into the quicksand on a pony and trap.

Despite Kipps?s experiences he resolves to spend the night at the house and fulfil hi professional duty.It is this night at Eel Marsh House that contains the greatest horror for Kipps. Rescued by Mr Daily, a friend he met on the train, Kipps discovers the reasons behind the hauntings at Eel Marsh House. The book ends with tragedy, with the woman in black exacting a final, terrible revenge.
