Her 1956 novel Beast in View won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel. In 1965 Millar was the recipient of the Los Angeles Times Woman of the Year Award and in 1983 the Mystery Writers of America awarded her the Grand Master Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Beast in View is very well written and the pace is just right. Although it was written in 1955 it still holds up, although it's not as shocking today as it probably was back then. I read the book along with the audio book which is a fun thing to do, especially if the narrator is good and uses different voices. And I was surprised by the ending which is one of the strengths of a gifted writer. Recommended if the reader likes psychological thrillers.
