Synopsis
--------

Proud and solitary, Eel Marsh House surveys the windswept reaches of the salt marshes beyond Nine Lives
Causeway. Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral Mrs Alice Drablow, the house's sole
inhabitant, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. It is not until he glimpses a
wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling
deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black - and her terrible purpose.
