Four legendary novels of suspense from Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster and Los Angeles Times Woman of the Year, Margaret Millar

The four novels in this collection straddle one of the most tumultuous decades of the 20th century and display Millar’s 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.

A STRANGER IN MY GRAVE (1960)

HOW LIKE AN ANGEL (1962)
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.

THE FIEND (1964)
A young girl is at risk this tense and disturbing page-turner that reveals a web of domestic abuse among a disparate cast of middle class Americans.

BEYOND THIS POINT ARE MONSTERS (1970)
The investigation into the disappearance of a wealthy California rancher brings to light the secrets of a whole community this a haunting and complex masterpiece of suspense.
