A gothic chiller which still feels incredibly modern, Beast in View is a true classic of the crime fiction genre.

I wish I had read this book instead of listening to it. The performance drove me nuts, especially the voice of the matriarch in the story, which overemphasized the melodrama. As for the book, the characterization of Blackshear is utterly inconsistent and unbelievable. I will try another Millar book before I give up on her, but I think I'll switch to reading these.

Superb psychological study
If you could sum up Beast in View in three words, what would they be?
This is a superb psychological study disguised as a novel of suspense and terror. Millar is a master of the unexpected twist and this clearly is one of her best books. In Millar, like Highsmith, crime is more interesting than detection and the ultimate focus is on a diseased society and the way it breeds fear.
