Devotees of Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black will recognise Ed Marsh House and the deadly causeway. They will know of the sinister lady and the strange pull of the nursery. All this is nicely laid out for those who are not familiar with the original so despite being a sequel, this is also a deliciously creepy, old-fashioned ghost story in its own right. The setting has jumped to World War II and a bunch of school children and their two female teachers are evacuated to the house. On the way down in the train the younger teacher attracts the attention of an airman. Single love interest. But this is a ghost story, not a love story, and so the unexpected occurs with a nice twist. It is going to make a splendid film in 2014.

If you like Martyn Waites you might also like to read books by David Peace, Frank Lean and Chuck Palahniuk.

Synopsis

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death by Martyn Waites

Autumn 1940, World War Two, the Blitz. Bombs are raining down, destroying the cities of Britain. In London, children are being removed from their families and taken to the country for safety. Teacher Eve Parkins is in charge of one such group, and her destination is an empty and desolate house that appears to be sinking into the treacherous tidal marshes that surround it. EEL Marsh House - Far from home and with no alternative, Eve and the children move in. But soon it becomes apparent that there is someone else in the house; someone who is far deadlier than any number of German bombs...The Woman in Black.

Reviews

The Woman in Black is back, and she is just as terrifying in this sequel as she was in Susan hill's creepy classic...Brilliantly clautrophobic and utterly chilling, Angel of Death is genuinely jump-out-of-your-seat frightening. - Daily Mail

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
