The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story
Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral Mrs Alice Drablow, the house's sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. 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.

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.
