The Book Nymph Book Spotlight

Guilty Innocence 

Maggie James

Book Synopsis
Two eleven-year-old boys.
One two-year-old girl.
A murder that shocked the nation.
Ten years after being convicted of the brutal killing of a toddler, Mark Slater, formerly Joshua Barker, is released on parole from prison. Only the other boy jointly sentenced for Abby Morgan’s murder, the twisted and violent Adam Campbell, knows the truth. That Mark played no part in Abby’s death.
Four years later, Mark’s on-off girlfriend discovers a letter revealing his conviction as a child killer. At risk of having his protective cover made public, Mark’s need to confront the injustice of his sentence becomes overwhelming. Desperate to find answers, he initiates a friendship with Abby’s older sister, something strictly prohibited by the terms of his parole. Rachel Morgan, however, unaware of Mark’s former identity, is battling her own emotional demons.
Meanwhile, circumstances have thrust Mark back in contact with Adam Campbell, who, aged twenty-five, is more domineering and chilling than ever. Can Mark rewrite history and confront his nemesis?
A gritty novel examining child murder and dysfunctional families, Guilty Innocence tells of one man’s struggle to break free from his past.

 Loved it! March 8, 2014

A scary look at dysfunctional families and lives. Thrilling and deep down scary. The book was well written, and you could really relate to the pain of being convicted of a crime you didn't commit.

One of those books you simply can't put down. A surprising thrill ride of a journey that you can't put down. I highly recommend this book!

 A Deep, Dark Thriller March 3, 2014

I've lately become quite a fan of the author and have enjoyed some of her other books so I knew this would be equally good.

I have to admit that I spent much of the book truly disliking Natalie and her sneaking, deceitful ways. Even if Mark were guilty no one deserves a girlfriend like that. It's a testament to the author's talent that she can write such a disagreeable character who provokes such a strong response.

This was such a deep, dark, thought provoking story. It was a fast read but it stayed with me even after I turned the last page. Mark's journey and struggle to prove his innocence was so emotional and suspenseful that it left me mentally exhausted but it was totally worth every moment that I spent holding my breath!

This was another excellent book by a truly talented author. Thriller fans are sure to thoroughly enjoy it!

Author Bio:

Maggie James is a British author who lives in Bristol. She writes psychological suspense novels.
 The first draft of her first novel, entitled His Kidnapper’s Shoes, was written whilst travelling in Bolivia. Maggie was inspired by an impending milestone birthday along with a healthy dose of annoyance at having procrastinated for so long in writing a novel. His Kidnapper’s Shoes was published in both paperback and e-book format in 2013, followed by her second novel, entitled Sister, Psychopath. Her third novel, Guilty Innocence, has now been published, and like her first two, features her home city of Bristol. She is currently editing her fourth novel, The Second Captive.

Before turning her hand to writing, Maggie worked mainly as an accountant, with a diversion into practising as a nutritional therapist. Diet and health remain high on her list of interests, along with travel. Accountancy does not, but then it never did. The urge to pack a bag and go off travelling is always lurking in the background! When not writing, going to the gym, practising yoga or travelling, Maggie can be found seeking new four-legged friends to pet; animals are a lifelong love!
