The Woman in Black is a 1983 horror novel by Susan Hill, written in the style of a traditional Gothic novel. The plot concerns a mysterious spectre that haunts a small English town, heralding the death of children. A television film based on the story, also called The Woman in Black, was produced in 1989, with a screenplay by Nigel Kneale. In 2012, a theatrical film adaptation of the same name was released, starring Daniel Radcliffe.

The book has also been adapted into a stage play by Stephen Mallatratt. It is the second longest-running play in the history of the West End, after The Mousetrap.

    The story is told in the most leisurely manner, and it certainly is not the author's fault if the reader is not intimately acquainted with the river and with almost the entire crew and passenger list of the Votaress before closing the book. The plot is complicated and there are some dramatic scenes, although certain incidents, especially the appearance of Harriet in Ramsey's place, strike one as a little far-fetched.
