Defense attorney and writer, Maggie Rose, is famous for her ability to get convictions overturned. Maggie has been contacted repeatedly by Hamish Wolfe, a serial killer that has been imprisoned for a series of murders involving plus-size women, but so far Maggie has ignored his attempts to gain Maggie’s help with his case.
One day while out Maggie hears the cries for help when a dog ends up in danger and can’t help but jump into help rescue the pup. The woman that had the dog turns out to be the mother of Hamish who begs Maggie again for her help. Maggie decides to visit Hamish in prison even though she still believes that the case can’t be won but finds herself being charmed by the charismatic Hamish much like many others.
Daisy in Chains is a psychological thriller that has a lot of the story told through the case files, documents, emails, articles, reports, letters etc. At first I didn’t think I would be a huge fan of this format as it took a bit of getting used to and slowed it down a tad for me but in the end the story won me over and I really enjoyed this one.
Definitely a page turner with interesting characters it didn’t take long to become hooked on the twists and turns held within the pages of this one. Maggie is a strong independent lead that has her own style of doing things and was easy to become interested in as she got involved in the case. Hamish and his story was quite intriguing and had me arguing with myself on whether he was guilty or innocent.
Overall, great psychological thriller that had me guessing until the last pages.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
