Guilt – Amanda Robson – 5*Review

There is no bond greater than blood . . .

When the body of a woman is found stabbed to death, the blame falls to her twin sister. But who killed who? And which one is now the woman behind 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 that the sisters must face up to?

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?

My Thoughts…

‘Guilt’ is a dark, intense thriller.

Beginning with a tragedy, it continues moving between the present and the past as it reveals the traumatic aftermath and explores the events leading up to the devastation of the twins’ lives.

Written in short chapters from the three central characters’ point of view. It is fast-paced, character-driven and a well-blended mix of action and internal conflict. Focusing on the twins’ Miranda and Zara’s complicated relationship and how it changes when Sebastion invades their lives.

Seb is a dark, troubled man who hides his true nature behind a friendly, open facade. Zara is an artistic, carefree woman who self-harms to alleviate her profound feelings of inadequacy. Academic Miranda is outwardly successful, but she is socially inept and finds it difficult to invest in relationships. The twins love each other but recognise they are polar opposites in personalities. Seb uses this weakness to come between them with devastating results.

Don’t be put off by the melancholy ethos of this story, it is addictive reading, and both the plot, characters and their often toxic interactions make this book a riveting, page-turning read.

I received a copy of this book from Avon Books UK via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
