Summary

The new audiobook from Sunday Times number-one best seller Martina Cole sees the return of her iconic heroine DCI Kate Burrows. If you liked The Ladykiller you'll love Damaged. The 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian) and the biggest selling female crime writer in the UK, Martina's unique, powerful storytelling includes Dangerous Lady, The Take, Betrayal and many more.

When the bodies of missing schoolgirls start turning up, former DCI Kate Burrows is dragged out of retirement.

A new Grantley serial killer is in town and DCI Annie Carr turns to Kate for help. She welcomes the distraction from her home life with former gangster Patrick Kelly, whose long-lost son has turned up out of the blue, bringing trouble with him.

It soon becomes clear the killer is on their doorstep and as the body count grows, Kate and Annie face a race against the clock.

But they have no real leads...and there's more to these murders than meets the eye. Can Kate take the killer down before another schoolgirl dies?

Critic reviews

"Kate is the hard-but-fair 'filth', who also likes to brush (romantically) with the wrong side of the law." ( London Lite)

Fabulous from start to finish

This is only my second audio book and was hooked from start to finish.
Martina Cole has always got a good story to tell but the narrator made it come alive

Not Martina Cole's best

It was predictable and repetitious and a weak ending. The narrator was worth listening to.

fantastic book

it's a great read with multiple plot lines that work really well, it tales off a bit 3/4 in but then ramps up again at the end for a fantastic finish!!
