Susan Hill is best known as the author of The Woman in Black, the theatrical version of which rivals The Mousetrap for longevity on the London stage. Hill has also written a new novella, The Man in the Picture www.susan-hill.com, in the form of a ghost story about an 18th-century painting that seems to have sinister properties after a Cambridge don acquires it. A review of this tale of sexual jealousy and revenge will appear tomorrow on One-Minute Book Reviews.
