Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Marian Taylor accepts a position as companion to Mrs. Hannah Crean-Smith, and gradually comes to the opinion that she is a prisoner of her husband.


Review:

"Whatever else is going on in her novels, and it's always a great deal, [Miss Murdoch] insists that the sequence of events and suspense continue. As a result, it is rare that the reader's attention falters. Indeed, 'The Unicorn', like most of her previous novels has that magnetic quality that is more usually the attribute of a detective story. But Miss Murdoch is a kind of enchantress. While she has you under the spell of her yarn, she is also doing all kinds of things to your imagination."

Peter Buitenhuis, New York Times Book Review, 5/12/63
