About the Author

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 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 working on her fourth novel. Before turning her hand to writing, Maggie worked mainly as an accountant, with a short 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 walking dogs and fostering homeless cats; animals are a lifelong love!

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!

The story is good, but there is more language in it than I like. I didn't find most of it to be necessary to the story itself.

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!

Mark Slater, aka Joshua Barker is a convicted child murderer from ten years ago. Supposedly he and Adam Campbell brutally tortured, beat and murdered little Abby Morgan. But Mark knows he did not kill this child. Mark is under a different identity, working and having a relationship with Natalie and has to check in with his parole officer frequently. He is to have no contact with Adam, the Morgan family, or even go anywhere near the spot where she was killed. Natalie found a letter and she discovers who this boyfriend of hers really is and dumps him. She has enough issues of her own from almost being raped as a child. Mark goes off to try and ease his conscience by getting close to Abby Morgans sister, Rachel. He needs to see how his actions affected all those involved so he can put this to rest. He also finds himself in contact with the evil, psychopath Adam again. Mark needs to make things good and set things straight. Even if it costs him Natalie, his freedom and maybe even his life. I really enjoyed this suspenseful book. It was scarey and shocking. I started to figure plot out about half way through. The language was a little raw and the typo's frequent. I really enjoyed the story line and the powerful characters. Very gripping and believable. I really want to read more this authors work.

Guilty Innocence is the tale of a man who has had to serve time for a crime that he didn't commit. The murder of a child is a devastating crime to be accused of, and even worse to have been imprisoned for. Nonetheless, he finally gets out of prison and tries everything to start a new life. Unfortunately, things do not go according to plan for Mark. He has to face his demons and try to find a way to prove his innocence. This book is emotionally draining and full of suspense and surprises. I could not put this book down. Maggie James is a stellar author, and I applaud her amazing work on this book. The writing is smooth and full of imagery that you feel as if you're there with Mark throughout every scene. The dark tone of the book keeps you on edge and you cannot help but hope that somehow, despite opposition, everything will be all right.

As usual, Maggie James has written an astounding novel. "Guilty Innocence" is an incredible tale of child murder and deceit. I literally could not put this book down. The characters in this story are well developed and are very believable. The story is written well, and the dialog is easy to follow. I just had to keep reading to find out what happened between Mark and the terrible Adam. If you are into mystery and suspense novels, then be sure to read this one, I highly recommend it. Thumbs Up!

If you’ve ever tried to separate the variety of flavors swirling together in a fully-loaded ice cream sundae, dripping with succulent tastes, you know the impossibility. Well, Maggie James does something equally impossible with Guilty Innocence, her psychological suspense, in which she separates an intricate mosaic of the human psyche. And she succeeds.

James serves the reader a shocking event in the first few pages of her novel. But rather than leave you with a simplistic journalistic version, she meticulously peels off the layers of complex psychological connections between and among the characters. The author gives the reader plenty of time to know the full dimensions of her intriguing characters.

The story of Guilty Innocence slowly wraps the characters in a web of emotion and deliberation that catches the reader off guard. Keeping the reader guessing is a hallmark of Maggie James as she comfortably exposes her story, while stripping the psychological cover-ups from the souls of her characters. Yes, you’ll see everything, up close, as if sitting in the jury box of a courtroom.

Be prepared to find yourself in a dilemma, as you deliberate the deeper meaning of Guilty Innocence. The author gives the reader all the pieces, but as judge and jury you’ll still be pondering the “what ifs” long after you turn the last page. That’s what I enjoy about Maggie James’s books, her stories continue to resonate.

With that in mind, as a reader, I’m “guilty” of enjoying Guilty Innocence, but I innocently award it Five Gold Stars. Another splendid piece of writing, Ms. James!
