Proud and solitary, Eel Marsh House surveys the windswept reaches of the salt marshes. Arthur Kipps, a young solicitor summoned to a funeral, has no inkling of its tragic secret or of the mysterious black-robed woman who haunts its shuttered rooms. 'The Woman in Black' is a spine-tingling classic of its genre.
