Description

She was beautiful and evil – she murdered minds as well as bodies…

‘A work of art – terrifyingly believable’ NEW YORK TIMES

‘Superb … BEAST IN VIEW is cunningly plotted and has an ingenious final twist’ MAIL ON SUNDAY

‘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.
