The Man in the Picture (Paperback)

Susan Hill

-  

This is the chilling tale of a painting so terrifying, its secrets will haunt those who see it...It is a ghost story by the author of "The Woman in Black". A mysterious depiction of masked revellers at the Venice carnival hangs in the college rooms of Oliver's old professor in Cambridge. On this cold winter's night, i eerie secret is revealed by the ageing don. The dark art of the Venetian scene, instead of imitating life, has the power to entrap it. To stare into the painting is to play dangerously with the unseen demons it hides, and become the victim of its macabre beauty...
