Book Description
Watch the YouTube video trailer. 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, its 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.

    L'uomo nel quadro

    Una classica ghost-story, ambientata in tempi moderni ma dal fascino immutabile.
    Sai fin dal principio quali saranno le tappe, cosa ti racconteranno e come andrà a finire, anche se non nel dettaglio... ma ti coinvolge comunque fino in fondo.

    this is the first time I came across Susan Hill's novel. It is a short story and well written. However, I felt the story deserves some elaborations. I am looking forwards to reading her classic ghost story: "The Woman in Black".
