The storm of '87 had been the greatest, most ferocious storm to have hit Britain in centuries. The suffering that ensued was plentiful, but none more so than that of little Matthew Mason, whose parents were brutally murdered in the midst of the storm by a homeless man desperate to find shelter.
After 25 years of torment, Matthew is released from a mental institute under the watchful eye and care of Tammy Atkins, a care worker with a secret history of alcohol abuse and self-harm. As he struggles to adapt to his new found liberty, he finds himself continuously plagued by the demons of his past. Haunted by strange and ghastly images and urges, Matthew sets himself upon a path of vengeance; determined to seek out his parents' killer and put his demons to rest once and for all.
A smart, stylish and disturbing psychological thriller, The Damaged is a new release from Simon Law that delves deep into the darkest depths of the human psyche. An exercise in reader manipulation, Law sets out to stagger the senses, delivering an exacting plot and noir narrative underlined by a stratum of evil. On the immediate level, Law’s tale is an unapologetic revenge story and it veers between haunting and brutal with each dramatized in the form of Matthew Mason. He’ a complex character. Not bad, but neither is he a very good one and this allows Law to modulate the tension and express the darkest of implications at a pace which quickly gathers momentum and makes the best of his tales underlying themes. There’s truth, deceit, salvation, damnation and subtle morality twists which add palpable depth, but in Mason’s quest for revenge readers are forced to consider the price they would ultimately be willing to pay to right a wrong.
Powerful and undeniably dark, The Damaged makes a welcome addition to the genre and is sure to win Law a host of enthusiastic followers. It is recommended without reservation.
