Review "Damaged" By Pamela Callow

Damaged by Pamela Callow
Published by Mira Books
ISBN-13: 978-0-7783-2750-9
At the request of Meryl Moss Media, The Book Trib, a PB was sent, at no cost to me, for my honest opinion.
  Synopsis (back of book): How far are you wiling to go to forget your past? Haunted by the death of her sister and wounded by her ex-fiance's accusations, Kate Lange throws herself into her new career at a high-powered law firm.
  When 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.
  My Thoughts and Opinion: Once again I am amazed. This is the 4th book that I read this year, as an author's debut book, that blew me away. I was pulled in by the time I finished the first chapter to the very last page. This 453 page novel had all the elements and writing style of a seasoned author. Many twists and turns at a fast pace. It could be described as both a legal thriller and medical mystery page turning read. It is hard to explain some aspects of this book without giving away spoilers. However, what I will do, is highly recommend this book especially if you love legal/medical thrillers, because this book has it all.
I received a copy of this book, at no charge to me,
in exchange for my honest review.
No items that I receive
are ever sold...they are kept by me,
or given to family and/or friends.
