Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has everything you need to keep you turning the page. Kate is a strong protagonist who, after setbacks in her past, is now struggling both personally and professionally. The combination of emotional themes, great characters, plot twists, unique setting, and the creepy Body Butcher make this thriller a must read for Summer. You won't be disappointed!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
DAMAGED, Pamela Callow's first novel, is everything you'd ever want in a mystery/thriller. From the outset, overwhelming anxiety over the fate of Kate Lange, her precarious position within the law firm where she's worked for only a few months, not to mention her personal danger brought on by her immutable belief that she has to track down a killer, keep the tension high. Added to all this, is Callow's incredible ability to weave an intricate tapestry of mystery, fear, pain and guilt.
If you have time for only one book this summer, let it be DAMAGED.
You will not be disappointed.

I carried this gripping thriller around in my purse for two days, sneaking it out at every opportunity to read the next page. I was so hooked I even had to finish one chapter by reading it under the table while I was out having lunch with my kids - I don't think they noticed! Can't wait for book two - Indefensible.

Solid Debut Aug. 24 2010
By Lori Johnston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Damaged, author Pamela Callow's freshman effort at legal mystery/suspense/conspiracy thriller, started slowly but if you are patient, you will be rewarded by what became a page-turning, perfect summer read. It builds slowly, while painstakingly laying the groundwork on central character Kate Lange, her former fiance, Detective Ethan Drake, Kate's employer, and its partner, Randall Barrett, plus a bevy of supporting characters.

I found the murder mystery and conspiracy aspects of the story to be especially fascinating, having not guessed far ahead of time the connections and the "solution" before Kate (one of the bigger disappointments for me with mysteries/thrillers). I also appreciated the resolution, as it didn't stretch reality to unnatural boundaries and it seemed the natural course by the end of the book.

I liked the character of Kate by the conclusion of Damaged although I was a bit neutral about her throughout much of the early story. I always like a tough, determined character with some humanity and all three traits were in evidence as I flipped that last page. I was particularly pleased to note that Ms. Callow will have a new mystery featuring Kate releasing next year and I hope that we will learn more about Kate on this next venture.

By the same token, I hope that we will receive additional insight into the characters of Ethan Drake and Randall Barrett, who both seemed to be yearning for additional literary time. I felt that both characters still have a wealth of information to share and excellent storyline potential.

I also hope that we will see Kate's neighbors again, the elderly sisters Muriel and Enid, who I found engaging and pleasing. Is it possible that these two have secrets themselves or is it just the conspiracy buff in me at work?

Damaged, considering its subject matter, isn't heavy on the gore or violence, although it may have a few objectionable words. There is no sexual matter, although a brief innuendo, and some mentioned drug use.

In all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Damaged to fans of the mystery, thriller and/or legal genre, all of whom are sure to be satisfied by this debut work that packs a powerful little punch.

Callow Delivers Feb. 16 2011
By Sandy Toes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I thought Damaged was a great read! This makes me anticipate Callow's next literary offering. Kate Lange is the smart lawyer, with all the insecurities of a woman who is trying to overcome an early life that left her dealing with fear and guilt. As she discovered she was being used by the lawyer that hired her into a prestigious firm, she refuses to let anyone rob her of her future! The plot has many twists and turns. This is a great page-turner.

Riveting Sept. 12 2010
By creative quilter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This fast moving thriller combines a bit of the legal genre with a lot of the mystery. The heroine is a character who is endearing because she is flawed enough to be believable. On occasion her ability to survive is a bit over the edge but it all works together to create a fascinating read that is hard to put down. When she is first introduced it is as a fairly newly minted lawyer who has recently broken the relationship with her policeman fiance when another officer unveils Kate's past to her fiance in front of others. His inability to understand why Kate has hidden her past from him is compounded by her own anguish at having the painful past dredged up. Nonetheless, the tension between them remains strong and is an integral part of the story, as is her past.

As first the granddaughter of her client is murdered in a horrid manner, then others are found to have been a well, she is thrust into the middle of the investigation. As a result she learns about body donation to science, how those bodies are used and what can become an ugly side of the business when greed and a lack of integrity drive the principals. The characters are cleanly drawn while the story offers enough twists and turns to keep the reader riveted. Even the ending offers freash surprises. A book worth reading.

Damaged - Two Stories In One July 28 2010
By K. Herbrand - Published on Amazon.com
Kate was a new lawyer at Lyons McGrath Barrett law firm. She knew that she was going to have to work hard to prove that she belonged there. Having recently ended an engagement to Ethan Drake, detective, she had got a new job, bought a new house, and acquired a dog named Alaska.

Barrett was determined to keep Kate practicing family law for 2 reasons - He had a bone to pick with Ethan Drake and with John Lyons - the partner who had recruited her. He assigned her a case with a futile outlook. A grandmother (Marian) wanted custody of her granddaughter (Lisa) - but did not have any proof that the granddaughter wasn't being taken care of properly or that she was doing drugs. The hitch was that Lisa's mom was Hope Carson, a criminal court judge known for her icy personality and demeanor.

Kate tells Marian that she really doesn't have a case, but after mulling it over tries to call her back to discuss it. Unfortunately it is too late and Lisa has been murdered and dismembered. Talk about opening a can of worms! Now Kate has to worry that she did everything by the book in talking with Marian. She figures she can throw her law career out the window when John Lyons assigns her a litigation file with Trans Tissue as the client. Trans Tissue makes surgical products and they are being sued by someone who believes they contracted Hep C after an arthroscopic knee surgery using their product. See, the surgical products are made from human tissue from cadavers harvested by tissue suppliers.

So you really have two stories in one. You have the medical mystery of how this patient contracted Hep C and you have the very grisly thriller of the serial killer. There are quite a few supporting characters which are absolutely necessary to round these out and the book kept me tuned in all the way to the end. They did not give anything away too quickly but rather dropped the pieces in a little at a time. Definitely a must read. I am eagerly awaiting the second book in the series Indefensible, which is due out in January of 2011. I just discovered there is a third book - Tattooed coming out in August of 2011 and a fourth book planned for 2012.

Damaged June 5 2010
By ks/ns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This novel is a must get. Most of my thriller books are set in other countries, to have one set in my backyard is a little creepy but a whole lot of fun. Eagerly awaitng Ms. Callows next thriller with the same cast and setting. K.S./N.S
