The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story
1986 Set on the obligatory English moor, on an isolated cause-way, the story stars an up-and-coming young solicitor who sets out to settle the estate of Mrs. Drablow. Routine affairs quickly give way to a tumble of events and secrets more sinister than any nightmare. This first-class thriller - lately reincarnated on the stage - is a brilliant exercise in controlled horror. A real spine-tingler by a real master.

This is a book for older audiences but a great GCSE SAMPLE book
This is very well written. The main character believable and likable. The story is down right scary unless ghosts without chain saws and claws aren't frightening. Great atmosphere. The setting is a character unto itself.
Highly recommended for those who like a little subtly in their scares.
