Title found at these libraries:

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

Daisy Bland is young, beautiful and naive, and her testimony threatens to send her husband to the gallows.

For Daisy, it all started when she literally bumped into Hugo and fell madly in love. She gave up everything for him: her job, her friends, her independence. Blinded by love, she asks no questions about his vague profession as a 'commission agent', his suspicious associates and his 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. Her husband's life is now 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
