About Amanda Robson
After graduating, Amanda Robson worked in medical research at The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and at the Poisons Unit at Guy’s Hospital where she became a co-author of a book on cyanide poisoning. Amanda attended the Faber novel writing course and writes full-time. Her debut novel, Obsession, hit the Kindle top 100, staying there for weeks, and reached number 1 on iBooks. It has received widespread acclaim from authors and press alike.
I loved the pace of this book, which is largely due to the short chapters, and probably the main reason I read this in a very short time. Having read and enjoyed Amanda Robson's debut novel 'Obsession' my expectations were high for 'Guilt' and I was not disappointed. 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.
