The Travelling Bag: And Other Ghostly StoriesDe (autor) Susan Hill
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 29 Sep 2016
From the foggy streets of Victorian London to the eerie perfection of 1950s suburbia, the everyday is invaded by the evil otherworldly in this unforgettable collection of new ghost stories from the author of The Woman in Black.
In the title story, on a murky evening in a warmly lit club off St James, a bishop listens closely as a paranormal detective recounts his most memorable case, one whose horrifying denouement took place in that very building.
In 'The Front Room', a devoutly Christian mother tries to protect her children from the evil influence of their grandmother, both when she is alive and when she is dead.
A lonely boy finds a friend in 'Boy Number 21', but years later he is forced to question the nature of that friendship, and to ask whether ghosts can perish in fires.
This is Susan Hill at her best, telling characteristically flesh-creeping and startling tales of thwarted ambition, terrifying revenge and supernatural stirrings that will leave readers wide-awake long into the night.

Susan Hill proves yet again that she really is the master of the supernatural.
Hill knows more than most how to send a shiver up the spine
Master of horrors ... absurdly terrifying ... Hill evokes the sense with all her customary unnerving economy - but it's the cruelties of human interaction that give these stories, set in clubs and colleges, offices, boarding schools and suburban homes, their bite. The last, in particular, will have readers' hearts banging at their ribs well after they have closed the book.
A ghoulish little volume ... These four expertly spun tales haunt and chill.
Spine-tingling ... chilling ... a skilfully crafted collection to delight fans of the supernatural ... Read it home alone at your peril.
