Format: Paperback
This is by far my favorite book by Margaret Millar, the Master of mystery writing. In The Fiend, a mystery with a twist, Millar treads a subject matter never discussed lightly and probably never handled so well by another mystery author -- pedophilia. Be brave! Despite your fear and revulsion you'll be rewarded for your courage.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By bibliophile on September 4, 2012
Format: Hardcover
If you like mysteries with deep psychological insight and well drawn out characters, then Margaret Millar is the writer you should turn to. Her husband Ross McDonald earned a big name for himself in the 1950s and 60s but Margaret Millar was the truly gifted writer in the family. The fiend is one of her better books. It is an in-depth examination of aberrant psychology but rather than leaving you with a feeling of disgust and repugnance, it evokes compassion and understanding about the circumstances and motivations that provoke people to behave in certain ways.
