Soho Syndicate is in the process of re publishing many of Margaret Millar s suspense novels Millar was a renowned award winning suspense novelist of the fifties Interestingly her husband is better known by his pen name Ross MacDonald Truly a literary power couple Beast in View is a rather short novel even by mid fifties standards It has an unusual feel to it of distance and detachment and has been described as a psychological suspense novel I don t know if it s typical of Millar s writing but than being a crime thriller it seems to poke a bit of fun at the Santa BarbaraBeverly Hills upper crust finding many of those folks merely actors playing their chosen parts Many of the characters are oddballs from 30 year old shut ins to widows living off uickly disappearing inheritances to wanna be Actresses desperate for fame to closet homosexuals outcasts at that time living with their mothers and taking endless photography classes There s a real sense of awkwardness and uncomfortableness with all these characters
