‘Millar was the master of the surprise ending (exemplified in BEAST IN VIEW)’ INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

At thirty, Helen Clarvoe is alone: her only visitors are the staff at the hotel where she lives, and her only phone calls come from a stranger.

Until that stranger, with a quiet, compelling voice, lures the aloof and financially secure Miss Clarvoe into a world of extortion, pornography, vengeance, madness and murder.

But who is the hunter and who is the victim…?

A gothic chiller which still feels incredibly modern, BEAST IN VIEW is a true classic of the crime fiction genre.

Millar was the master of the surprise ending (exemplified in BEAST IN VIEW)
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
Superb ... BEAST IN VIEW is cunningly plotted and has an ingenious final twist
MAIL ON SUNDAY
A wonderfully crepy and terrifying slice of noir
CATHOLIC HERALD
Margaret Millar is surely one of late 20th century crime writer's best writers... the prose is of superb quality... But it is the use to which Mrs Millar puts her strongly imagined words that makes this book so exceptional

She is the very top rank of crime writers
Julian Symons
Consistently entertaining... a justly celebrated classic
