Shadows of the Mind Box Set 1: Three chilling novels of psychological suspense in one box set Kindle Edition
Three great psychological thrillers in one bargain box set!
The Second Captive:
Beth Sutton is eighteen years old when Dominic Perdue kidnaps her. Held prisoner in a basement, she’s dependent upon him for food, clothes, and her very existence. Beth never allows herself to forget that her abductor killed his last captive. She has evidence to prove it, as well as Dominic’s own admission of murder.
Then Beth escapes…
And discovers Dominic Perdue is not a man who lets go easily. Meanwhile, despite being reunited with her family, she spirals into self-destruction. Release from her prison isn’t enough, it seems. Can Beth free her mind from Dominic’s grasp before he recaptures her?
Because if he does, he’ll kill her…
A study of emotional dependency, The Second Captive examines how the mind makes dark choices under duress.
A decade after eleven-year-old Mark Slater’s conviction for killing another child, he’s finally released on parole. Only the twisted and violent Adam Campbell, also sentenced for Abby Morgan’s murder, knows the truth – that Mark played no part in her death.
Four years later Mark’s girlfriend is shattered when she discovers his grim past. With his protective cover blown, Mark’s need to confront the injustice of his sentence becomes overwhelming. Meanwhile circumstances have thrust him back into contact with Adam Campbell, who has become even more domineering and chilling. Can Mark rewrite history and confront his demons?
A gritty novel examining child murder and dysfunctional families, Guilty Innocence tells of one man’s desperate struggle to break free from his past.

After their mentally ill mother becomes increasingly unstable through Chloe’s manipulations, events take an ugly twist. Chloe is out of control, and there’s little anyone can do about it. Until her actions threaten the life of Toby, the man Megan adores but from whom she’s hiding a tragic secret.
Threatened with losing everyone she loves, can Megan stop Chloe before she kills again?
A study of sibling rivalry and dysfunctional relationships, Sister, Psychopath tells of the damage inflicted on one woman by her own family.

Guilty innocence: Wow, wow and wow again! Another brilliant book from a superb author!
This book starts with a scenario that reminded me of the Jamie Bulger case in 1993. A delicate subject matter- but do not be put off by this. This is but a part of a case of someone with a dysfunctional childhood who is scared and frightened of most things and gets drawn in when someone pays him attention. There are only a few pages of what happened years before- the rest is about the boy and the man and how things affected him and others that he seeks to help to put right the misdemeanours of his childhood and the guilt for not being strong enough at the time to prevent murder.
Childhood memories reflect in all of us, and more so when stability and love have been absent. Mark realises this slowly in both himself and others and his heart is in the right place, it’s just the other things that need to be put in place to sort out right from wrong, justice from injustice.
Sister psychopath: Chloe is an arrogant, self -absorbed, prepossessing woman who sets her targets on people or items and lets nothing get in her way. The man she has in sight though, has discovered liberty on the other side of the tracks.
Maggie, as ever gets you deep in to the characters, their thoughts and actions, without giving away where the plot is likely to go. Before I read this author I would not have thought that a “psychological thriller” would be my cup of tea at all. Now it comes with a home -made cookie (figuratively and literally!). I had a feeling that I could see where this was going , but only in the last few pages before the reveal, which didn’t impede the story at all.
The second captive: Wow, wow and wow! What a book! This drew me in from the very start despite from the resume knowing what it was about and my mind thinking so what’s likely to happen. Very real characters and fantastic descriptions make this a very “real” read (well done Maggie). You are there feeling Beth’s every thought and move, wondering how she will make her escape. This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. My only (minor) disappointment is that the brother didn’t act responsibly- but then again if he had we wouldn’t have had such a great read. Can’t wait to read more from this author.
Shadows of the Mind is an explosive mix of psychological thrillers saturated with riveting suspense throughout the 776 pages.
I’ve read each of Maggie James’s psychological thrillers, and I enjoyed each page of her work. Each standalone novel is filled with different characters, different setting and circumstances, and different plots, but each carries the consistent high quality writing and brilliant plot execution James is known for and her readers have come to expect and enjoy.
James does a masterful job pulling the reader into the minds of her characters, thus deepening the reading experience for the reader. The combination of His Kidnapper’s Shoes, Sister, Psychopath, and Guilty Innocence is bound to entertain fans of this genre! Five stars and more
i can't wait to read the other two novels in this collection.
