Hill knows how to chill you to the bone in the most disarming way ... This collection digs deep into the human psyche, exploring its hinterland for paranormal disturbance ...

Master of horrors ... absurdly terrifying ... Hill evokes the sense with all her customary unnerving economy - but it's the cruelties of human interaction that give these stories, set in clubs and colleges, offices, boarding schools and suburban homes, their bite.
