Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton. Recommended by Fiona (Reader Development Team and Whitefield Library).
Famous killers have fan clubs. Hamish Wolfe is no different. Locked up for the rest of his life for the abduction and murder of three young women, he gets countless adoring letters every day. He’s handsome, charismatic and very persuasive. His admirers are convinced he’s innocent, and that he’s the man of their dreams. Who would join such a club? Maggie Rose is different. Reclusive and enigmatic; a successful lawyer and bestselling true-crime writer, she only takes on cases that she can win. Hamish wants her as his lawyer, he wants her to change his fate. She thinks she’s immune to the charms of a man like this. But maybe not this time. Would you?
‘A stand alone novel that messes with your head from the minute you start reading it; all the usual clues you rely on to figure out whodunit are overturned again and again. An ingenious reveal that has left me with a very big book hangover! Highly recommended.’ Fiona
