When an art expert goes missing, three women fighting to regain control of their lives realise their future is about to become as dangerous as their past in this brutally compelling thriller

The Eye of the Beholder Summary

The Eye of the Beholder by Margie Orford

When danger lies in the eye of the beholder, what happens when you reject its pull?

Cora carries secrets her daughter can't know.
Freya is frightened by what her mother leaves unsaid.
Angel will only bury the past if it means putting her abusers into the ground.

One act of violence sets three women on a collision course, each desperate to find the truth, when the people they love are not what they seem.

The Eye of the Beholder Reviews

A tale of love and abuse that is as powerful as it is elegant - and it grips like a vice, too -- IAN RANKIN
Subtle, chilling to the bone and very contemporary. Margie Orford has a quietly understated, beautiful literary style -- PETER JAMES
Orford truly understands the transformative power of violence for those who survive it and those who visit it upon others. It gives her writing visceral power -- DAMIAN BARR
The acclaimed 'Queen of Crime fiction' in South Africa takes a further step into the dark. The result is as compelling as it is frightening and deeply thought provoking. The Eye of the Beholder is sure to play a key role in the ongoing debate about what women and men are, and can be, for each other in these violent times -- JACQUELINE ROSE
Praise for Margie Orford: Margie Orford is a name you should commit to memory * * O, Oprah Magazine * *
Wonderfully crafted and fully engrossing -- MICHAEL CONNELLY
Margie Orford is world-class. This is crime writing at its very best -- DEON MEYER
Orford has a rare ability to get under the skin of the genre's conventions * * Irish Times * *
