A classic whodunit and a deep, disturbing study of the dark places of the human psyche...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.
A classic whodunit and a deep, disturbing study of the dark places of the human psyche...
