Sort order. Guilty is a psychological thriller about uncovering the secrets behind the disappearance of 13 year old Constance Lawson. After an argument with her parents, Constance sneaks out of her house never to be seen again. Constance's uncle, Karl Lawson, is under suspicion and their close relationship comes under negative scrutiny.
The disappearance causes family turmoil when no one knows what to believe and leaves Karl's life torn apart. I don't want to give too much away although the "why" to Const Guilty is a psychological thriller about uncovering the secrets behind the disappearance of 13 year old Constance Lawson.
I don't want to give too much away although the "why" to Constance's disappearance is shared early on. The rest of the book focuses on the aftermath. How the disappearance affected the lives of various characters. This was a problem for me as I just never really connected with these characters. I especially disliked the reporter, Amanda and her self serving actions. Having so much of the book focusing on her was a definite negative for me.
I initially felt bad for Karl but his actions during the latter part of the book were pretty vile. That was probably what kept me turning the pages despite my strong dislike for Amanda. I really enjoyed watching him go from misunderstood good guy to bad guy. What does it take for someone to cross that line from good to bad? How much is too much when you have essentially been a wronged victim too? The beginning of the book which detailed Constance's disappearance was fast paced and definitely kept me turning the pages quickly. It was the best part of the book for me.
Then it got decidedly slower and at times I had to really force myself to stick with it. Overall Guilty was for me an ok read. The pacing could definitely have been better in my opinion. The twists were interesting at the onset but my failure to connect with the characters made enjoying the last part of the book difficult.
I honestly didn't care what happened to Amanda. View all 27 comments. Feb 22, Sue rated it really liked it Shelves: net-galley , kindle-paperwhite , thriller.

Karl Lawson is Constance's uncle and had been close with his niece so when the search begins he shares that he knew of her being in the secret club but had thought he'd gotten her to give it up. As the days go by with no trace of the missing girl the media runs wild with the story and when her body is found suddenly Karl finds himself the main suspect in the crime. Guilty by Laura Elliot is going to be one of those psychological thrillers that plenty of people fall in love with but unfortunately I wasn't one of those people leading to my low rating with this one.
For myself I found this one a bit on the slow side and hard to connect with while reading. The focus on the media or more specifically the journalist Amanda Bowe left a lot of the book being news articles which to me throws off my pace with connecting with the characters and feeling it becomes more of reading the evening news. This book is told in four parts and to be honest if the entire story was only the first part dealing with the missing Constance I might have scored this one a bit higher also.
Searching for a missing child and wanting to know just what had happened is rather intense and engaging so that part of the book had my attention. After moving on though is when it started to drag for me and I really start to question what is going on and the characters interactions. I can see why others would love it I suppose but just in my own opinion it wasn't anywhere near as engaging a story after a certain point and this one turned out to just not be for me. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

Laura Elliot can sure tell a tale as she has in her previous books which has also gripped my attention from beginning to end. Guilty starts off with a gripping narration.
A point where it says "A message to the Fearless. Then it says that no one can call them chicken again. I know I was. Just the cover drew me in, but once I started to read I just honestly couldn't put this down. Karl Lawson has his own wife and family, nearby lives his brother a What a read! Karl Lawson has his own wife and family, nearby lives his brother and his wife and family. Their eldest daughter Constance loves her Uncle Karl and seems to turn to him when she has arguments with her parents as most teens do.
This particular argument involves Karl as hes provided a night out for the Constance and the girls but under his supervision. But her parents isn't agreeable to this. Karl knows a bit of what Constance has been doing, but sorted it. Justin his brother doesn't know, so imagine when it all comes out. Constance is missing. There ensues the story of a brilliant plot. What if everyone had suspicions on you. Karl was under great suspicion with the Journalist outside his home, his wife even not sure about him, so much so she moves out taking his daughter with her.
He looses his job too. I just really got my teeth into this one big time. There is a huge twist in this that you won't see coming and not everything is as it seems. I personally recommend this book.

The rumors and the free press is not helping anyone. Nice thriller, really nice. View 2 comments. I found that I really just wanted to see if she got what she deserved after being a horrible excuse for a human being, that did nothing but ruin the lives of everyone around her, while simultaneously stepping on anyone she needed to in order to get what she wanted. Since he was treated so well, and was kidnapped by his TV hero. But Amanda will suffer the psychological affects for a long time, as she watches and listens to her son talk so lovingly about the time he was kidnapped, while she has to constantly relive what she did to Karl and how he so effectively took everything away from her.
And I was glad to see Karl come out the other side having felt vindicated and relieved, and able to move on with his life. Revenge plot? Murder mystery? A social statement as to how media, and especially social media confuse and cloud our ideas of reality? I really wish one or 2 of these had been more thoroughly explored, and left the others to a different book. The only thing I felt truly emotionally invested in, was how thoroughly I despised Amanda, and everything she did and stood for. Which did end up leaving me quite satisfied in the end when everything comes around full circle, and the full scope of the plot comes together for the big picture reveal.
