The Woman in Black: A Ghost StoryRead about the other books on the list.
by Susan Hill
Set on an English moor in the not-too-distant yet suitably murky past, this chilling tale -- complete with fog, a long-buried secret, and, of course, a haunted house -- follows a young solicitor who comes from London to attend the funeral and settle the estate of Mrs. Alice Drablow. What he doesn't know...well, you get the picture.
The Woman in Black is one of Kate Mosse's top 10 ghost stories.
