Description

The classic ghost story by Susan Hill: a chilling tale about a menacing spectre haunting a small English town.
 
Arthur Kipps is an up-and-coming London solicitor who is sent to Crythin Gifford—a faraway town in the windswept salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway—to attend the funeral and settle the affairs of a client, Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. Mrs. Drablow’s house stands at the end of the causeway, wreathed in fog and mystery, but Kipps is unaware of the tragic secrets that lie hidden behind its sheltered windows. The routine business trip he anticipated quickly takes a horrifying turn when he finds himself haunted by a series of mysterious sounds and images—a rocking chair in a deserted nursery, the eerie sound of a pony and trap, a child’s scream in the fog, and, most terrifying of all, a ghostly woman dressed all in black. Psychologically terrifying and deliciously eerie, The Woman in Black is a remarkable thriller of the first rate.

Customer Reviews

Quick and creepy!

I saw the theater production when I was in London in 2007, and so I was pretty caught off guard by how creeped out I was by the last few chapters, despite the fact I already knew the plot! This was a fun, quick, creepy read. I definitely recommend it!

Suspenseful, a Tragedy

I read this book in 2 days. Fairly short read; the suspense, and the descriptive words kept me turning the page. I was so enveloped that at one point I felt my own heart racing.

A "modern day" tragedy-

I recommend this book!

A classic ghost story

Blends elements of horror and tragedy into a thrilling tale. This novel continues to stand the test of time.
