"Hill knows how to chill you to the bone in the most disarming way ... This collection digs deep into the human psyche, exploring its hinterland for paranormal disturbance ... With consummate artistry, Hill creates stories that prowl around your mind, coming at you from unexpected angles, invading your senses. Perhaps read them out loud to a friend? Advantage: there's safety in numbers." - Daily Mail
"Susan Hill proves yet again that she really is the master of the supernatural." - Fanny Blake, Woman and Home
"Authentically unnerving." - Tim Martin, Daily Telegraph
"Hill knows more than most how to send a shiver up the spine." - Ian Rankin
"Master of horrors ... absurdly terrifying ... Hill evokes the sense with all her customary unnerving economy - but it's the cruelties of human interaction that give these stories, set in clubs and colleges, offices, boarding schools and suburban homes, their bite. The last, in particular, will have readers' hearts banging at their ribs well after they have closed the book." - Imogen Russell Williams, Metro
"Spine-tingling ... chilling ... a skilfully crafted collection to delight fans of the supernatural ... Read it home alone at your peril." - Daily Express
"The mistress of the macabre presents four eerie tales." - Press Association
