THE BEAST IN VIEW by Margaret Millar Kirkus Star


By Margaret Millar

Pub Date: June 17th, 1955
Publisher: Random House

A split personality provides some shattering moments which begin with the phone call which terrifies drab Helen Clarvoe, hiding in a hotel room behind a wall of money, and continue with the attacks against her frivolous mother and her homosexual brother which leads to his suicide- and them to murder. A middle-aged friend of the family makes the right diagnosis- of the wrong person-in his attempt to end the victimization here. Unsparing, unnerving.
