The Damaged is a top notch Thriller/Horror that delivers a gruesome and disturbed story. Like the storm that opens the narrative this story builds up to a violent crescendo that unloads with great ferocity.
Simon Law has that rare talent in delivering a story that actually made me wince several times. This book is truly a twisted and depraved offering that lulls you into a false sense of security. Even though this story is a late bloomer I feel the first slower part of the book is vitally important in drawing you into this book. This is one author I will watch with interest and look forward into delving into more of his tales.
As an audiobook production I found the narrator very un-emotive in his reading. His voice whilst pleasant was very flat and it was thanks to the strength of the story that these issues where overcome. A weaker narrative would have suffered from the reading.
