But although the book has something in common with the pure gothic fiction of the 18th and 19th centuries, it is really only a distant cousin of the genre. It is a ghost story — not a horror story, not a thriller — and not a gothic novel; although the terms are often used very loosely, they are not by any means the same thing.

There are undertakers with shovels, of course, a local official who would rather be anywhere else, and one Mr Arthur Kipps, solicitor from London. He is to spend the night in Eel Marsh House, the place where the old recluse died amidst a sinking swamp, a blinding fog and a baleful mystery about which the townsfolk refuse to speak. But when the high tide pens him in, what he finds — or rather what finds him — is something else entirely. Susan Hill.
