There are worse crimes than murder.
"It may well be the finest example to date of the fusion of the novel of character and the puzzle of suspense." (Anthony Boucher, The New York Times)
When first published, The Fiend was nominated for an Edgar by the Mystery Writers of America.

An effective tale that is well performed. Psychological study of several damaged souls. The potential danger facing a young girl becomes the foundation for a richly imagined study in character. Although there are numerous twist, this book and most of Millar's work depends on character study more than detection. This is crime fiction at its best.
