The Haunting of Hill House (1959)

One of the most acclaimed horror novels of all time, The Haunting of Hill House (1959) by Shirley Jackson follows the misadventures of a group of people recruited by Dr. John Montague, a would-be specialist in the "analysis of supernatural manifestations," as they attempt to document the goings-on at Hill House. Hill House ("not sane"), erected in the late nineteenth century, was commissioned by one Hugh Crain—whose first wife died before she even managed to enter the house. His second wife also died. And the third. If this run of suspiciously bad luck wasn't enough, the house has since seen a run of mysterious events, suicides, and strange accidents, all of which have left it with a very unfortunate reputation indeed.

Roger had run a stall at Kensington Market with Freddie years earlier 
and they were clearly soulmates; 
they’d often sit together, giggling.
