At 30, 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.

Superb psychological study
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.
