Review: The Woman in Black | Treat Yourself to a Good Old-Fashioned Scare

The Woman in Black
Susan Hill (1983)

With Halloween just a few weeks away, there’s no better time to snap up a copy of this perfectly rendered Gothic ghost story. A young London lawyer travels to a remote corner of an eerie English moor to settle the estate of a recently deceased client. Of course, circumstances require that he stay the night in the haunted house, isolated daily by the rising tide that renders the one road in and out impassable. He soon learns why villagers behave so strangely when they learn his destination, and then comes to wish he’d never set eyes on the mysterious woman in black. Dripping with creepy atmosphere, this old-fashioned supernatural tale will have you gleefully turning pages. I dare you to read it late at night.
