The thriller that launched lawyer Kate Lange into the hearts of a quarter of a million readers—and into the path of a serial killer...

"...every bit as exciting as books by many New York Times bestselling authors..."—Fresh Fiction

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.

"...a taut, edge-of-the-seat thriller..."—#1 Internationally Bestselling Author Linwood Barclay

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.

"...dark and dangerously suspenseful..."—Atlantic Books Today

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, here is a debut that had me flipping pages until the wee hours of the morning."—#1 New York Times Bestselling Author James Rollins

A Levy “Need to Read Pick" with Top Ten Bestseller display, now under option for television development. For fans of John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell, James Patterson, and Tess Gerritsen.


“Pamela Callow’s debut thriller, DAMAGED, reminded me of the best of Robin Cook: lightning paced, innovative, topical… and most of all, frightening. Part medical mystery, part bloody thriller, here is a debut that had me flipping pages into the wee hours of the morning.”

—James Rollins, #1 NYT bestselling author

"DAMAGED is a taut, edge-of-the-seat thriller with strong characters and a driving plot. Pamela Callow is Halifax's answer to both John Grisham and Tess Gerritsen."
—Linwood Barclay, internationally bestselling author 

"Taut, tense, and relentlessly chilling… this fast- paced thriller is the definition of page-turner: you can't wait to find out what happens -- but you're not sure you want to know."
Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha-winning author

"A compelling page-turner... Pamela Callow is a rising star."
—Rick Mofina, bestselling author of SIX SECONDS

"Extremely well plotted, Callow's debut novel is a hybrid of a police procedural and medical thriller. Heroine Kate Lange is a standout character, and readers will certainly look forward to reading her further adventures." 
—RT Book Reviews

"Pamela Callow's debut thriller, DAMAGED, is every bit as exciting as books by many New York Times bestselling authors... This tightly wound thriller springs through an intricately woven plot to keep the reader anticipating and squirming to the last pages."
—Fresh Fiction

"Saying it's action-packed is a bit of an understatement. It's the kind of book you buy on Friday and stay up all night reading." 
—The Chronicle Herald

"...this debut novel by a member of the Nova Scotia bar is one utterly complete, complex and convincing book that has one hooked from the first line...while this is a thriller, well-written and with a great plot, it is one that defies categorising. While the mystery may be medical with sophisticated and high technology required to improve lives, it’s dark and dangerously suspenseful..."

    From Wine please
    Very well done. At one point there was too many suspects, and secondary characters causing some confusion and leaving characters undeveloped. The story was impressive. Rich and in-depth. Many of the main characters live in shades of grey but are likeable and relatable.

    From Seeker NS
    I enjoyed the book. A thriller mystery based in a city I live in. The main character is a young and ambitious female lawyer. Her employers are not always what they appear to be. I look forward to reading more books in this series. Pansy Fong

    From Smartie0000018
    I thoroughly enjoyed reading DAMAGED. Heart thumping
  • Awesome!

    From Sepidak
    I enjoyed reading this book a lot. I started reading it a couple of weeks ago and last night I couldn't put it down until 4:30 in the morning that I finished it! Already bought the second book of this series! Many thanks to the talented author, Pamela Callow. Looking forward to sinking in excitement of the second story!
  • Forcefully inspiring

    From VictoriaaFrann
    Kate is definitely just starting her undoubtedly brilliant career-one I am officially invested in! She’s tough but tender; determined to make her own path. This was a realistic and well-told story. I like the fact that glimpses of romance was in the background-hopefully she will find someone in the rest of the series. Whoever will match her stride will definitely cause an explosive romance…perhaps a power couple too!

    I have never been a reader of thrillers but I have to say I really enjoyed Pamela Callow's book "Damaged". I was surprised that I didn't want to put it down! When I finished I immediately went on to read her next two books. Can't wait to read her fourth, coming out soon!
