Reviewed by Dianne Woodman

Susan Hill has written a chilling and spine-tingling ghost story set in Victorian London. Vivid descriptions of moonlit moors, ancient stone churches, haunted country manors, and gloomy weather add to the atmospheric creepiness of the story.

The Mist in the Mirror opens with an unnamed narrator engaging in conversation with Sir James Monmouth at a gentlemen’s club in London. This encounter leads to Sir James entrusting the narrator with a manuscript about his life. The narrator retires to his lodgings and reads Sir James’ story. The book ends with a postscript that focuses on the narrator and has an unexpected twist.
