Damaged by Pamela Callow: Review
While digging deeper into the girl's past, Kate is handed the biggest case of her life. What she doesn't expect is how the two cases will collide and push her into the path of a brutal killer.
Damaged by Pamela Callow is the first in a three part series. The thing about the first book in a series is there is a lot of setting up the relationships and character of the protagonist. It was a rocky start for me but once the plot got cooking I found myself not wanting to put it down. I was wondering how the separate storylines were going to connect.
Damaged is a gritty thriller with Halifax's seedier side a perfect backdrop for murder and conspiracy. There is some nasty business between these pages and it had me feeling a bit queasy! It's definitely not a book to read alone at night if you're the nervous type.
Kate has a couple of potential love interests and I have to say I'm not to impressed with either of them. Her ex-boyfriend the cop expects perfection while her boss gets annoyed with her for making him think sexy thoughts. I really hope both of these guys smarten up in the next book.
The reviews for this are all over the place but I enjoyed it and recommend Damaged if you're up for a thrilling mystery. I'll be looking forward to reading the next book, Indefensible.
