Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House. The house stands at the end of a causeway, wreathed in fog and mystery, but it is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black – and her terrible purpose.

If you like a traditional ghost story, then this is for you. Have read this in the past but decided to break myself in gently with an old favourite and found it just as chilling as the first time I read it. Very atmospheric and well written. Would definitely recommend.

I liked this fiction book because it was descriptive and exciting. Parts of the book were thrilling and tense followed by parts that were calm. My favourite character was arthur because he was courageous and determined to find out what was happening at Eel Marsh house. I would recommend this book to someone else becuase I enjoyed reading it.
