Arthur Kips, an up-and-coming London lawyer, goes to Crithin Gifford, a remote town on the north-east coast of England. The purpose of his trip is to attend the funeral of a client, Alice Dramblow, and to settle her unfinished business.
On the way there, Kips is unaware of the tragic secrets that will be revealed to him
Ultimately, a routine business trip turns into a nightmare when Kips begins to be haunted by mysterious sounds and images – a rocking chair in an abandoned nursery, the eerie sound of a monitor, a child’s howl in the fog and, most terrifying of all, a ghostly woman dressed in black.
