Daisy in Chains

Written by S.J. Bolton

Review written by Karen Boyle

Karen spent 30+ years as a Civil Servant, mostly in Revenue which is where she developed my absolute hatred of poor writing skills! Her favourite genre is now crime/thriller/police procedural/legal genre with the occasional foray into chick-lit and general fiction.

The story is about a lawyer/author who takes on a serial killer’s appeal. She doesn’t care whether her clients are guilty or innocent she just wants to win the case and write a book it.

The book is written predominantly from the lawyer’s perspective and follows her investigation/research process.  It uses a lot of emails, letters, police documents, newspaper articles, etc., and at first I wasn’t sure about the style; but twenty pages in I was convinced and completely drawn in. The style allows the reader to follow the process and the documents form a substantial part of the story.

The narrative has so many twists and turns that I found it impossible to guess – correctly - how it might end. Throughout the story the author does give subtle clues to help the reader but they still did not prepare me for the shock ending which was absolutely brilliant, stunning. 

The writing flows very well and is really easy to read. However, the book is not without issues. I found that in one instance prison procedure was incorrect, something I would not have expected in a reasonably well researched book. The other issue for me was that a major police operation took place without a senior officer’s knowledge, something which strikes me as being unrealistic. Despite these issues, I was totally gripped by this story, guessing pretty much to the end and it was refreshingly different.

I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers but wants something a bit different and challenging.
