In Ravenbank, Hallowe'en is particularly chilling. It is a time for telling the story of the Faceless Woman, her corpse discovered with a makeshift shroud frozen to her battered face.

The Frozen Shroud

The story starts of well as a good murder but deteriates further along into a long discourse on the lives of people in the story. I like Martin's books but not a fan of this one.
