Reviews

"For those who devour ghost stories, this author has provided the perfect one. . . . Susan Hill has forever left satisfied readers in her wake. Her excellent, cold yet not horrific, writing style is extremely unique. Many readers who pick up this gem will go back and read Hill's earlier books, and become extremely loyal fans."
--Suspense magazine

"Thanks to Hill's deceptively simple plots and straightforward prose, you won't even notice the noose she's slipping around your throat."
--The Seattle Times

"There's nothing like a good old-fashioned ghost story, and the masterful Hill authentically channels such giants of the Gothic genre as Poe and Doyle in this eerily atmospheric yarn of restless spirits, both temporal and corporeal."
--Booklist

"Penetrating psychological insight and believable supernatural intrusions into the commonplace recommend Hill's subtle ghost story. . . . Hill energizes eerie atmosphere and formal execution with an emphasis on sensitive characterization and psychological reaction. The effect is devastatingly elegant, eschewing shock for lingering unease and a sense of inevitable doom. . . . A delight for aficionados and newcomers alike."
--Publishers Weekly
