“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


"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..."

    Awesome thriller!

    This book is one of the best thrillers I have ever read! It builds suspense, the characters are beautifully portrayed - almost like you know them and the plot is taut with an ending a satisfying surprise. I loved this book!

    Fantastic!! Spine-tingling--a MUST READ!

    I don't usually finish books within hours...but DAMAGED had me from the start. The story is chillingly believable, employing suspense that is backed by sound medical and criminal research. But what makes this book five stars is its strong characters. Kate is a resourceful, haunting protagonist who engages with terrifyingly real adversaries and a cutthroat corporate environment...I cannot wait to read the next instalment!
