"A gripping thriller! 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." -- Amazon reviewer

Two eleven-year-old boys.

One two-year-old girl.

A murder that shocked the nation.

Ten years after being convicted of the brutal killing of a toddler, Mark Slater, formerly Joshua Barker, is released on parole from prison. Only the other boy jointly sentenced for Abby Morgan’s murder, the twisted and violent Adam Campbell, knows the truth. That Mark played no part in Abby’s death.

Four years later, Mark’s on-off girlfriend discovers a letter revealing his conviction as a child killer. At risk of having his protective cover made public, Mark’s need to confront the injustice of his sentence becomes overwhelming. Desperate to find answers, he initiates a friendship with Abby’s older sister, something strictly prohibited by the terms of his parole. Rachel Morgan, however, unaware of Mark’s former identity, is battling her own emotional demons.

Meanwhile, circumstances have thrust Mark back in contact with Adam Campbell, who, aged twenty-five, is more domineering and chilling than ever. Can Mark rewrite history and confront his nemesis?

A gritty novel examining child murder and dysfunctional families, Guilty Innocence tells of one man’s struggle to break free from his past.

Meet the Author

Maggie James is a British author who lives in Bristol, a city featured in her first three novels. 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.

Maggie 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!
