Eye of the Beholder, The
The Eye of the Beholder is a cult classic that inspired both French and English film adaptations.
Joanna Eris has a bad habit of marrying men that wind up dead. An unnamed private detective, known simply as ‘The Eye’ is hired to investigate the death of her husband.
The novel charts the development of the detective’s dangerous obsession with a femme fatale, as he pursues her across the united states.
‘One of the most remarkable combinations of a private-eye novel and psychological suspense story, with an entirely new slant, that has ever been published’
The New York Times Book Review
‘A pivotal work in the history of mystery fiction’
Maxim Jablowski, The Guardian
