A dark and twisted mystery. Hamish Wolfe is languishing in jail, the convicted killer of four large women. Movie-star handsome, his mother and groupies are trying to recruit a lawyer-novelist named Maggie Rose to overturn the former doctor's conviction, based on her successful track record. Eventually, she agrees to meet Wolfe in prison, and after several meetings, decides to help. The detective constable warns her of trouble, which, of course, ensues. And the last third of the book are a whirlwind, as Maggie makes a number of discoveries that the police did not. Sadly, the end was less of a surprise than it should have been. ( )

Best book I've read in ages. Kept me gripped the whole way through and I never saw the final twist coming.

I do like Sharon Bolton's stand-alone books more than the Lacy Flint series, although these I still devour. I can't wait for the next one. ( )

Good LORD. When the twist was revealed, I literally did that bug-eyed “holy shit” face. This is one of those books you need to reread to truly catch everything.

Dare say, my favorite Bolton novel? ( )

Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton is a spellbinding mystery about a serial killer's efforts to get his conviction overturned.

Maggie Rose is a reclusive defense attorney and true crime author who is famous for successfully getting several notorious murderer's convictions overturned. After refusing to meet with Hamish Wolfe, a handsome doctor convicted of murdering three young women, she is approached by his mother who asks her to reconsider her decision. After she learns more about Hamish and the murders, she decides to meet with him so he can present his case to her in person. Although not fully convinced of Wolfe's innocence, Maggie agrees to look over the evidence but she warns him she will most likely not change her mind about representing him. However, the deeper she delves into the cases, the more intrigued she becomes and Maggie officially accepts Hamish as her client. While the odds of discovering new evidence that will exonerate Wolfe are not in her favor, Maggie is soon embroiled in her investigation. Will she find information that will clear Hamish? Or will Maggie discover irrefutable proof that he is, in fact, guilty of the crimes he has been convicted of committing?

Although she lives a low-key life out of the limelight, Maggie is a bit of a contradiction. She does not hesitate to help rescue a possible drowning victim and her hair is dyed bright blue. She is fiercely independent and values her privacy, but after a series of vaguely threatening incidents at her home, she comes to the attention of Detective Sergeant Pete Weston, who, coincidentally, arrested Wolfe for the murders. He has absolutely no doubt he arrested the person responsible for the killings but he is willing to hear Maggie's theories once she begins digging around in the case. However, Pete is not swayed by her theories and he continues to try to dissuade her getting involved with Hamish.

During the course of her investigation, Maggie dissects Wolfe's life both in the past and the present. He might be a well-liked and well-respected surgeon now but in his college days, there were whispers of impropriety about him and a group of his friends and their ill-treatment of overweight women who bear a striking resemblance to the three women he is convicted of murdering. Even more chilling is the unexplained disappearance of his college girlfriend Daisy Baron, who vanished without a trace years earlier while they were dating. With plenty of rumors hinting at a dark side to Wolfe, Maggie refuses to heed his requests to leave the past alone. After she discovers troubling information that might link Wolfe to the murders, Maggie is running out of time to find exculpatory evidence that will lead to a new trial.

Written from multiple points of view, Daisy in Chains is a compelling psychological mystery that is initially a little slow paced but eventually becomes impossible to put down. The characters are richly developed and although flawed, they are easy to root for. The novel is well-written with chapters alternating between the various characters' perspectives and a series of newspapers articles, e-mails and letters. Although Sharon Bolton eventually drops enough clues for the reader to guess the killer's identity, the novel comes to a suspense-laden conclusion that contains a few unexpected plot twists. An entertaining mystery that fans of the genre will enjoy. ( )

It can only be described as 100% suspenseful with a dark and unexpected twist at the end. I never saw it coming and never expected it to happen. I like an author can can pull off a stunt like that. Secrets run rampant through out the entire story. Everyone involved has them… from the detective who knows more about Hamish than one would expect. Then there is Maggie who appears to be a total blank slate that shares nothing that doesn’t benefit her career. Even Hamish's own mother who is active in her son's appeal attempt is hiding more than one secret. Sharon Bolton has created a psychological masterpiece in this one. ( )
