’Guilt’ is the latest book by Amanda Robson.
When the body of a woman is found stabbed to death, the blame falls to her twin sister. But who stabbed who? And which one is now the woman behind the bars? Zara and Miranda have always supported each other. But then Zara meets Seb, and everything changes. Handsome, charismatic and dangerous, Seb threatens to tear the sisters’ lives apart – but is he really the one to blame? Or are deeper resentments simmering beneath the surface? As the sisters’ relationship is stretched to the brink, a traumatic incident in Seb’s past begins to rear its head and soon all three are locked in a psychological battle that will leave someone dead. The question is: who?
On Saturday, I started Amanda’s second novel and was unable to put the book down until I reached the page.
Compulsive, edgy with complicated characters, this book was the perfect book to curl up with.
The story is written in the past and present tense and is cleverly seen through the perspectives twin sisters, Miranda and Zara and Zara’s lover, Sebastian.
The story starts at the present tense, right at the moment that one of the sisters kills the other one in self defence and from that point on, the reader is kept on their toes as they try to follow the clues and figure out which sister is the killer and which one has ended up dead.
Twins, Miranda and Zara are polar opposites of each other. Miranda is cool, collected and organised in life, whereas Zara is artistic, scatty and suffers from depression. Miranda is protective of Zara, having witnessed her sisters multiple suicide attempts, her sisters wellbeing is Miranda’s priority and this is quite a big responsibility on Miranda’s shoulders.
When Zara introduces Sebastian into their lives, Miranda can’t warm to him. Sneaky, manipulative with a nasty streak, it’s obvious that he’s had issues in life and his main goal is to come between the sisters relationship.
This story was an intensely thrilling story, with short chapters that made for snappy reading and the multiple perspectives, it was impossible to put down. Riddled with deceit, drama and suspense throughout, ‘Guilt’ is a cleverly written story that made for addictive reading.
