A Tangled Web. Nicholas Blake. Her husband's life is now in her hands. First published in 1956, A Tangled Web is an intelligent, off-beat crime thriller. wholly admirable writing.

As you’d expect they have a somewhat literary bent but what really makes Nicholas Blake’s books stand out is the element of moral ambiguity that he is almost always able to include.

As you’d expect they have a somewhat literary bent but what really makes Nicholas Blake’s books stand out is the element of moral ambiguity that he is almost always able to include. This makes Blake slightly unusual among golden age English detective story writers. A Tangled Web is not one of the Nigel Strangeways novels and it’s a particularly unconventional crime story. by.

This review is from: A Tangled Web (Kindle Edition)
I picked up this novel after seeing an Alfred Hitchcock Presents, upon which it is based. Robert Redford plays the charming lead with a secret.

Of course, the teleplay had to cut, all but the barest outline, so does not spoil the book. The novel is an interesting look back to the 1950's for me, helped dispel a long held notion, that psychological defenses, are more of a modern concept, though this inference, is associated with only a couple of lines in the book, so not giving away a big plot point.

I found the book both intriguing and heart rending. A chance meeting between a young man (Hugo) and unspoiled, country bred, Daisy, kicks of the story

I can only imagine, that the placement of the spoilerish first chapter, is to assure the reader, that they haven't inadvertently stumbled upon a contemporary bodice ripper, as the first, true, chapters of the book deal with the whirlwind romance of the two main characters, with only a line, here or there, to hint that all is not what it seems.

Well worth reading, this is a stand alone novel by author Blake, so don't expect any familiar characters to pop-up.

If you read the first chapter, you know the ending of the book. The first chapter is titled "..........."; the reason for the placement of this chapter as Chapter 1, is beyond comprehension.
If you are expecting Nigel Strangeway's to appear, you will be disappointed - this book is not a mystery and Nigel is nowhere to be found.
The book appears to be a novel. It is a story about a lovely young lady who becomes enamored with a gentleman who has been in prison; the love they have for each other is beautiful. However, there is darkness in the book that affects this sweet couple. There is definitely no "happy ending", and, unless you like darkness, absolute evil, and unhappy endings, I recommend you give this book a pass.
