Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling true-crime writer, she takes on only 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....

Excellent story, terrible voice

Great storyline, lots of good twists in the plot. Unfortunately the narrator sounds like she has a lisp and a fat tongue.

Another Brilliant book from Sharon Bolton

Another outstanding read from SharonI didn't see the end of this book coming.
I wasn't sure if I would enjoy the audible version as much as reading it myself but it was read brilliantly. Even though I may have missed some little points the ending was wrapped up in great detail and came to together very cleverly.
As always it will be too long waiting for the next book 📚 📝

Couldnt finish it.

No content, no action. This book just went on and on like it was chasing its tail. I kept thinking 'I had heard this part' and kept having to check my bookmarks. There is just no point to it.

A strange but very well written book

I always loved Sharon Bolton from her first book, and this one is no exception althought it is a bit different from her previous ones. Characters are not especially lovable, but they are very well portrayed, even the secondary ones have their own personalities, I was never confusing or forgetting them, and this, especially in an audio versions, is something very important to me. The story was good, the ending unexpected but satisfactory, it left me speachless. Overall not my favourite Bolton's novel, but still one of my favourite book of this year. It's hard to find thrillers so well written and perfectly constructed, with no loose ends. It was also original, different from any other you could have read before.
At the beginning I didn't like very much the reader, but going on with the story she was perfect for that book, her interpretation making the experience even better. I will surely recommend this book, but if it is your first encounter with the author I would probably start with Sacrifice, or Lacey'serie. This is a wonderful book, but maybe not for everyone, because if you like lovable characters you won't find them here.

Engrossing from the start.

A book I had to keep listening too every spare moment. Very much liked the format and narration. Although I had worked out a bit of the ending I had not worked out how it all played out which was great for me. As i very often find I know the ending well before the end and I'm disappointed if I'm right. Recommend this book.

Big girls are beautiful, never forget that!

Any additional comments?

Sharon Bolton's books are just amazing. What a great imagination she has! I have loved each and every one she has written and this was my first experience of an audible book of hers. Can't wait for the next book! Well done Antonia for bringing Hamish and Maggie alive for me! :-) Sharon, please get back to your writing desk :-)

could only manage 60 minutes

I can't actually rate the story as I am having to return this due to the narration. a shame as I have always enjoyed Sharon Bolton books.
I can not differentiate between characters despite listening to this while alone in car at 2 border queues with no distractions.
Disappointing.

wow!

as a very slim person I was offended on behalf of the larger person who might of read this book! ,the story was over shadowed by the offensive way and sheer nastiness the author used an already picked on group of people in our society. shame because I only carried on this book out of need for a book club not because it was good. it should have gone in the bin where that type of attuuide belongs.

Good twists and turns

A thriller with plenty of twists and turns, especially towards the end. The story is however a bit lacking and parts are frankly ludicrous and very unbelievable. Narration is pretty awful. Intonation abysmal, very little distinction between characters and a pretty unconvincing performance overall. Have given it 4 stars because of the good ending but I think it’s probably more like a 3.5.

First story in ages to keep me guessing

I did manage to twig the main twist about 40 mins before the end but not the actual outcome so very rewarding listen!

Confusing narration, story was OK

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, I found the ending disappointing, and, in the Audible version, I was constantly confused about who was talking and when dialogue ended and began.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sharon Bolton again?

Possibly with a different narrator

Would you be willing to try another one of Antonia Beamish’s performances?

No, her voice was beyond irritating. She didn't change voices between characters and different sections of dialogue often blended into one, so you didn't know who was talking, whether it was dialogue or part of the story, and subsequently, what was going on in the story.

Do you think Daisy in Chains needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, the ending was very closed.

Wow!

Any additional comments?

Wow! I never guessed, not an inkling... I was imagining a completely different ending to the one I got. This is the first book written by Sharon Bolton that I've read, but not the last. It's fast paced, exciting & keeps you guessing until the very end. It even had a bit of romance that was very convincing too. Antonia Beamish is an excellent narrator.
