The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood tells the story of the wealthy and eccentric Chase family from the account of Iris Chase. A novel-within-a-novel, the book weaves multiple narratives across different time periods. An autobiography detailing the coming-of-age-story of Iris and her younger sister, Laura, follows brief glimpses into Iris’ contemporary life. Complementing these two plotlines is the subplot of Laura’s posthumously published novel titled The Blind Assassin, in which two illicit lovers hide their scandalous affair. Clues scattered amongst the three interconnected stories builds a slow reveal of the actions and events leading up to the tragedies that have struck the Chase family.

With the death of his wife, and the fact that he is no longer active in law enforcement, Grant goes off to mete out his own brand of justice to the cases he feels most aggrieved about not having been solved. The problem with being judge, jury and executioner however, is that sometimes you find you might be wrong. The idea of a retired cop playing vigilante and bringing killers who got away with murder to justice really intrigued me. The prologue starts with a bang and sets the tone for the book, so you expect a fast-paced ride. The book lays out a bit of Grant’s background and how his son-in-law came to work with him.

Amper agrees with this hypothesis when she writes, “the narrator must have killed his wife at the time he says he killed Pluto” (Amper 478). Further evidencing the narrator’s manipulation of the plot through the use of time occurs when the wife’s body was found at the end of the story. Once the body was discovered, the narrator adds, “[the body was] already greatly decayed and clotted with gore” (Poe 25). This slip of the tongue causes the reader to question the validity of the narrator’s supposed murder of his wife. If only three days had passed since the wife’s supposed accidental murder on the cellar steps, the body would hardly have begun to decompose, let alone be ‘greatly decayed,’ therefore indicating the wife was murdered much earlier in the story, pointing to when Pluto died.
