Susan Hill's THE MAN IN THE PICTURE On Sale Today

From the renowned storyteller Susan Hill—whose first ghost story, The Woman in Black, has run for eighteen years as a play in London’s West End—has returned to a form that is fully classical and, in Hill’s able hands, newly vital. The Man in the Picture is a haunting tale of loss, love, and the very basest fear of our beings.

"A real treat for fans of a true, elegant ghost story, this slim novella is as accomplished a chiller as you would expect from the author of The Woman in Black. Told second-hand, as is traditional, alongside a scotch, a glowing log fire and a crackle of menace, it relates the history of a sinister painting and a figure in it who looks out at the viewer "with what I can only describe as pleading." This is chilling stuff – so make sure there's someone else in the room before you come to the end." - Independent
