BOOK: The Eye of the Beholder by Margie Orford.
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 – but the people they love are not what they seem. That’s Margie Orford’s new novel, The Eye of the Beholder (Jonathan Ball). Orford’s Clare Hart novels have been widely translated and she has been called the queen of South African crime-thriller writers. She is also an award-winning journalist and a member of the executive board of PEN International.
