Collected Millar : Legendary Novels of Suspense: A Stranger in My Grave / How Like an Angel / The Fiend
About this item
Four legendary novels of suspense from MWA Gradmaster, Margaret MillarThe four novels in this collection represent, in many ways, Margaret Millar at her zenith. They straddle one of the most tumultuous decades of the 20th century and display her uncanny ability to craft truly disturbing suspense fiction while still addressing social issues. Complex discussions of feminism, child abuse, and racism blend seamlessly into four of the most chilling tales ever told.In A Stanger In My Grave (1960) a young housewife named Daisy Harker's world is upended when a blank spot in her memory and a reoccurring nightmare link her to an unsolved murder and a decades-old conspiracy. California cultists, duplicitous damsels in distress, and dangerously high stakes conspire against Joe Quinn, a private eye who is beginning to feel more like a knight-errant in the often humorousHow Like an Angel (1962). A young girl is at risk in The Fiend (1964), Millar's tense and disturbing page-turner that reveals a web of domestic abuse among a disparate cast of middle class Americans. The investigation into the disappearance of a wealthy California rancher brings to light the secrets of a whole community inBeyond This Point Are Monsters (1970), a haunting and complex masterpiece of suspense.
