A gothic set in California comes from the pen of Margaret Millar, wife of Ross MacDonald and one of the most clever and resourceful authors on the suspense genre. First published in 1950, tells the story of a young family spending the hot summer months as lodgers at the country house of a mysterious widow. She is the possessor of "The Cannibal Heart" of the title, and she will not stop at nothing to get what it desires. A husband and a child, even if it means murder. It's now on the hands of a well-meaning, ordinary woman to fight back, trapped in a living hell, to live or die for her loved ones and for herself. Read this book. You'll never forget it.
