I am pleased to have been asked tk be one of the stops for the re-release of Maggie James book Guilty Innocence
The book was released on 9th May 2017 by bloodhound books
I give the book 5 stars.
When Natalie snoops through her boyfriend Mark’s possessions she finds more than she bargained for. Mark was once convicted of a brutal killing. Heartbroken by what she has discovered, Natalie’s dreams of a future with him collapse.
However, Mark was not the only person sentenced for the murder of two-year-old Abby Morgan. His former friend, the violent and twisted Adam Campbell, was also convicted and Adam knows more about the murder than he will admit.
When circumstances thrust Mark back in contact with Adam, the past comes back to haunt him. Can Mark ever break free from Adam? Will the truth ever come out?
This is the first book of Maggie’s that I have read so was unsure what to expect. I was moved by the story and at times found it challenging to read as the story revolves around two 11 year old boys torturing and murdering a 2 year old girl and follows one of the boys who has had his identity changed as he is older. The story starts off with Natalie finding a letter from a woman to her grandson explaining his mum never wants to see him again and is changing her name, which has been sent to him in prison. She finds the letter in her boyfriend’s house but it I enjoy addressed to him so she looks into why he has it. It turns out that the letter is sent to a child who tortured and murdered a 2 year old. She then investigates why he has the letter and finds ou he was one of the two boys charged with her murder.
The story switches from both Natalie and Mark (her boyfriend) point of view each chapter which I feel works really well as it gives both of their perspectives and what they are thinking all the way through the story. There are loads of twists and unexpected things come up throughout the story and all the twists add extra dimensions to the story Malkin it a gripping read.
