Synopsis

The Woman in Black

The Woman in Black $12.99

Stephen Mallatratt from Susan Hill

Published by Samuel French Ltd

The framework of this spine tingler is unusual: a lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse

There he caught sight of the woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed

Anyone who sees her dies!

The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night
