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.... Download and start listening now!

    " After reading and enjoying The Woman in Black, I tried this one. Hill does a good job of creating atmosphere and tension, but I found the story predictable. Clarissa reminded me of Jennet, the angry and crazed ghost from The Woman in Black. It's short and doesn't take long to read, but it's very easy to put down. "

    " Having just finished The Small Hand I wanted to read another ghost story so picked this one up by the same authoress. Another chilling novel which made me want to keep reading. There was only one bit which I wanted to skip but didn't. I'm looking forward to reading some more books of hers. "
