‘An addictive, compelling read, full of tension.’ KAREN HAMILTON
‘Absolutely powered through Guilt.Totally addictive and unputdownable.’ ROZ WATKINS
I read Guilt over one weekend, completely enthralled. This twisty and complex tale of twin sisters and the dangerous, damaged man who comes between them kept me guessing.’
‘Robson’s writing is sharp and emotive; the plot so tense and engaging. A fantastic read.’ ELISABETH CARPENTER

‘I absolutely loved it and raced through it. Thrilling, unputdownable, a fabulous rollercoaster of a read – I was obsessed by this book.’ B A PARIS
‘Obsession is a welcome addition to the domestic noir bookshelf. Robson explores marriage, jealousy and lust with brutal clarity, making for a taut thriller full of page-turning suspense.’ EMMA FLINT
“What a page turner! Desperately flawed characters. Bad behaviour. Drugs. Sex. Murder. I was compelled not only to see what every one of them would do, but also how they would describe their actions – they are brutally honest and stripped bare. This is one highly addictive novel!” WENDY WALKER
"A compelling page-turner on the dark underbelly of marriage, friendship & lust. (If you're considering an affair, you might want a rethink)." FIONA CUMMINS
‘Very pacy and twisted – a seemingly harmless conversation between husband and wife spins out into a twisted web of lies and deceit with devastating consequences.' COLETTE MCBETH
‘Amanda Robson has some devastating turns of phrase up her sleeve and she expertly injects menace into the domestic. It was clear from the very first chapter that this was going to a dark and disturbing journey.’ HOLLY SEDDON
‘Compelling and thoroughly addictive’ KATERINA DIAMOND,
‘A real page-turner – deliciously dark, toxic and compelling’ SAM CARRINGTON

Chapters are divided into 'past' and 'present', with 'present' being custodial and court scenes and 'past' subdivided to the specific characters point of view which is Miranda, Lara and Sebastian.
Twin sisters Miranda and Lara, opposites in character but devoted to each other, live together in Miranda's apartment. Enter Sebastian, Lara's new boyfriend, who quickly moves into the apartment and also moves into Miranda's place of work. Miranda has good reason not to trust Sebastian, and has to suppress her dislike for him, for the sake of her vulnerable sister who has a history of self harm. Sebastian seems to be testing the sister's relationship beyond their limits, and one of them is killed, but which one?
This dark and sexy tale, had me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to see what comes next from Amanda Robson.
Zara and Miranda are twins and very close sisters. Miranda is the quieter academic one and sister Zara is the more outgoing one. Zara has a boyfriend called Sebastian. Miranda and Zara both live together in Miranda’s flat and Sebastian comes to stay even though he still lives with his parents.
Miranda works as an accountant. One day she goes to work to find Sebastian starting working with her. He starts flirting with her and touching her up. Miranda though is not interested as it’s her sister’s boyfriend after all. But Sebastian is obsessed with her. Even, going to drugging her drink at home and as Miranda is on a high she doesn’t realise what she is doing and sleeps with Sebastian. The guilt that she has the next morning she asks Sebastian not to tell her sister anything what happening that night. But Sebastian plays on her guilt and fears.
Wow I really enjoyed this. I haven’t read Amanda’s first book so, I didn’t know what to expect. This is a gripping thriller that I couldn’t put down. But this is not for the faint hearted as it’s also about self-harm, sex, drugs and rape. Told in three different perspectives and in short chapters. But I thought this was better as sometimes a story can be too heavy. I felt sorry for Miranda but I hated the way Sebastian manipulated the two sisters because of his jealousy that drove them apart. I will look forward to Amanda’s next book.
Thank you Netgalley and Avon for a copy of this book.
Accountant Miranda and her artistic twin sister Zara live together in Miranda’s flat. When Zara meets the charismatic and handsome Sebastian she falls deeply in love with him but for reasons unknown he wants to cause a rift between the sisters. The story begins with Miranda ringing the police whilst trying to staunch the flow of blood from where she’s stabbed Zara, but is she guilty of murder or is it self-defence?
‘Guilt’ is a tense psychological thriller that takes place in the present time but goes back to what brought Miranda to the point of killing her sister. It’s told in each character’s perspective in short chapters written in an easy flowing style until the thrilling and totally fitting conclusion. It’s well-written with a gripping plot and interesting characters that kept me absorbed till the end.
It all begins with a dead girl that has been stabbed by her sister. But who is the victim ? And what events led up to that fateful day ?
The book skips from past to present day, whilst telling the story of non-identical twin sisters, Miranda and Zara, and Zara’s new boyfriend Sebastian. The story is told via all three main characters in alternating chapters. Although the story jumps around from past to present and character to character it is very easy to follow and definitely adds to the suspense.
I really don’t want to give too much away as it would ruin the book but be prepared for some very dark and tense subject matter, such as self-harm and rape.
Overall I really enjoyed the book and felt it was a very dark and tense thriller. It is made up of short chapters which made you just want to read just one more chapter !!
A must read for any one that loves psychological thrillers.
Thank you to Avon Books UK and NetGalley for a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
