Five top books of ghost stories

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top books of ghost stories:

The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story
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.
Read about the other books on the list.

The Woman in Black is one of Kate Mosse's top 10 ghost stories.
