Review

"No one chills the heart like Susan Hill" (Daily Telegraph)

"An excellent ghost story… magnificently eerie… compulsive reading" (Evening Standard)

"A rattling good yarn, the sort that chills the mind as well as the spine" (Guardian)

"Heartstoppingly chilling" (Daily Express)

"Terrifying... creepy classic" (Daily Mail)

"Susan Hill is the reigning queen of ghost writers and her period novella…is a classic, broodingly creepy and at times terrifying" (Michael Hogan Observer)

"Hill’s haunting tales may be slim, but they pull no punches…" (Harper's Bazaar)

"She writes with great power… Authentically chilling" (Daily Telegraph)

"One of the strongest stories of supernatural horror...the work bursts into life and does not flag until the end" (Washington Post)

"Irresistibly dramatic... Susan Hill has done the genre real honour" (Chicago Tribune)

Synopsis

Proud and solitary, Eel Marsh House surveys the windswept reaches of the salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway. Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral Mrs Alice Drablow, the house's sole inhabitant, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. It is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black - and her terrible purpose.
