Publisher's Summary

How far are you willing to go to forget your past?

Haunted by the death of her sister and wounded by her ex-fiancé’s accusations, Kate Lange throws herself into her new career at a high-powered law firm.

When the grandmother of a lonely private school student seeks her counsel, Kate thinks it’s just another custody case. But then the teen is brutally murdered. And it isn’t only Kate who wonders if her legal advice led to the girl’s death.

How far are you willing to go to redeem yourself?

Put on notice by Randall Barrett, the firm’s charismatic managing partner, Kate must fight for her career, for her reputation—and for redemption.

Unwilling to live with the damage she may have caused, Kate pursues the case on her own and unearths some chilling facts - facts that lead straight to the heart of a legal conspiracy. Facts that lead Kate directly into the surgically skilled hands of the Body Butcher.

“Part medical mystery, part bloody thriller...a debut that had me fl ipping pages into the wee hours of the morning.” (New York Times best-selling author James Rollins)

Canadian Medical/LegalThriller

Damaged is an intriguing Canadian medical legal thriller that grips the audience from the moment that a horrified Kate feels remorse that she allowed her fears to overwhelm her sense of decency as she knew the grandma made a strong appeal in the interest of her granddaughter. The key to the story line is Kate who is a classic scaredy cat who ends up in "Hell", which could have broken her or given her a backbone of steel. Fans will enjoy a sort of coming of age tale as the women who always chose flight now must choose fight for the first time in her life against a powerful influential opponent.

This 1st book in Series not as good as the 2nd.

I read the second book in the series, "Indefensible", before I read this first debut in the series. I must say that I enjoyed the second book much better than this one. I got a little annoyed about how she kept reflecting on how guilty she felt about being responsible for the death of her sister. That seemed to be described again and again when she could have just moved on with the story. Yeah, I get it that she feels remorse and will feel the loss forever, but it doesn't need to be brought up again, and again, and again.

I wish that she could have developed the main characters more than what she did. There were definitely some interesting characters and the book could have been much better if we could have gotten to know them better . . . oh, but did I tell you that she feels guilty about her sister's death as a result of the car accident . . ?

I would recommend that if you are trying to save credits, skip this one and move on to the second book in the series "Indefensible." I enjoyed the second book and have already purchased the third book "Tattooed."

Great Story and Performance

What did you love best about Damaged?

I loved the story and suspense. Pamela Callow has quickly become one of my favorites.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes it did. However, I listened to the books out of order. Listening to Indefensible first ruined some of the plot twist for me. But, I was hooked til the bitter end.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Kate broke into the funeral home. I was so afraid. Acutally said to myself, Kate what are you doing stupid.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved by the two elderly ladies. They were sharp. And no one was going to take advantage of them because of their age.

Damaged

My hope for the future is that reviewers learn how to spell before they write and post insidious comments. I found the narrator to be a pleasure to listen to: a soothing voice directing the reader through what I found to be often labor-some text. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

A story to make you feel mad and bad!

The story was okay, but made me sad as I listened. The main character is this guilt ridden women who hasn't done anything worthy of all this guilt. Then the guy, who supposedly loves her, treats her rotten because of what she supposedly did. Her terrible sin was that, while she was driving, her sister died when she had an accident. This theme carried too much weight for me. Guilt permeated the story plus there was so much repetiton; the same facts given over and over. The story didn't make me happy or excited to hear more of it. It made me mad and disgusted at how guilty she felt all the time and how her boyfriend was so heartless. I just wanted it over.

I can't finish this drivel

The narrator is aweful on this story. She pauses and breathes dramatically with the end of every sentence and the tone of her voice and over enunciation of each word precisely and slowly make it sound like she's reading to people who have English as a second language. It's just too painful to finish. Who knows if the story would be a good one.

Great romantic mystery.

Where does Damaged rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably in the middle. This book kept me listening. there was just enough suspense to keep it going. I honestly enjoyed this book.

What other book might you compare Damaged to and why?

I would compare this book to a Nora Roberts book, but maybe a little more suspense.

What about Eva Christensen’s performance did you like?

I really liked her, she plays a feminine character really well. She also does a good male, overall she was great!
