The Man in the Picture; Susan Hill

The Man in the Picture The Man in the Picture by Susan Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a creepy book in the Picture of Dorian Grey or the Daphne du Maurier sense - the horror is psychological, without using many of the modern horror themes. It's also a quick read, which keeps the sense of impending doom present (in other words, the author hasn't gone on and on and on about things, which often happens and causes my mind to wander enough to lessen the creep factor).

One word of advice: this is a much better read on a cold, damp, rainy day than on a sunny day! My bad.
