Description

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.show more

Review quote

"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 claustrophobic and utterly chilling, Angel of Death is genuinely jump-out-of-your-seat frightening." Daily Mail "Eek, this is the sequel to classic chiller, The Woman in Black. This time, the terrifying spirit is scaring the bejesus out of small kids (and us) in a creepy, creaking house in 1940." Star Magazine "An elegant novelisation." -- Peter Bradshaw Guardianshow more
