Synopsis

Hugo Chesterman: on trial for murdering a policeman. Why did he do it? Or could he be innocent?

Daisy Bland: Young, beautiful and naive, her testimony threatens to send her husband to the gallows.

For the young, and pretty, Daisy Bland it all started when she literally bumped into Hugo and fell madly in love. She gives up everything for him: her job, her friends, her independence. Blinded by love and naively trusting, she asks no questions about his vague profession as a 'commission agent', his suspicious associates and reckless financial decisions.

When Hugo is arrested for the murder of a policeman in a burglary gone wrong, Daisy doesn't know what to believe, but her husband's life is in her hands...

First published in 1956, A Tangled Web is an intelligent, off-beat crime thriller.

"A persuasive study in criminal character that is a model fusion of the suspense story and mainstream fiction...wholly admirable writing." - The New York Times
