- "The Damaged is a psychological thriller that will stay with you for days after reading it. The pacing is gradual and intense giving you heart palpitations as you anticipate what the characters might do or come across next. Add to this that he doesn't hold back when he describes the mental anguish of our lead character Matthew Mason, a tough subject matter to cover for some, but brilliantly executed." - horrorscreamsvideovault.co.uk
- "Equal parts squirm-inducing body horror and psychological thriller. Law handles the slick transitions between hallucination and reality with startling ease. By the end, even the reader is questioning what is real. Recommended." - Rue Morgue Magazine, Mar 2016

Tammy's daughter Jessica had been taken away from her. She walked to her little girl's room. "Jessica’s bedroom was the
only room in the house to have remained clean and tidy since her daughter had been taken away, and Tammy took great care to keep it that way. She wanted it nice and welcoming for Jessica, ready for the day she would come home to her again.
She stepped inside and quickly closed the door again, as if the mess from the rest of the house might somehow contaminate the room if she left the door open for too long."
She worked for an agency as a 'carer'. She was assigned a new patient after one of her older ones had died. Her job was to make sure he took his medicine twice a day.
"Tammy left the house and the sunlight embraced her like a warm shower of liquid light. The dark gloom of the house had made her forget what a bright and vibrant day awaited her outside, and the light stung her unprepared eyes."
I received a complimentary copy from Amazon in a promotion.
That did not change my opinion for this review.

"IF ONLY....." Throughout this book, the phrase chimed in my mind like a church bell tolling a funeral. "If only.." the 1987 Great Storm had never damaged Britain. If only George hadn't opened the door. If only Tammy didn't drive intoxicated. If only Matthew had remained asleep. The novel is a tragedy of errors, in which individuals mostly well-intentioned jump on the road not taken, the sure downhill path to misery.
As in all good horror, the inevitability is subtle, yet implacable, kind of like watching a car crash in the making, with characters who become vividly real and promise to linger in the mind.
I reviewed a digital copy generously provided by the author for review purposes, without remuneration.

This book is utterly mesmerising - the author describes Matthew's descent into psychosis brilliantly then the pace of the story gathers such before before a crescendo of blood and violence and retribution.
