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.

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."
