Product description

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 of Mrs Alice Drablow, the house’s sole inhabitant. He has no idea 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.

“A rattling good yarn, the sort that chills the mind as well as the spine.” Guardian

“An excellent ghost story… magnificently eerie.” Evening Standard

“Heartstoppingly chilling.” Daily Express

“Will make your knees tremble and your flesh creep.” Daily Mail
