Power has its price.
David Blake should be enjoying the high life now that he's top dog, controlling everything in the city that's worth controlling.
But when it becomes clear that someone wants him dead, Blake struggles to maintain his restraint. From the heroin-laced high-rises of Newcastle to the seedy back streets of Bangkok, in a world of contract killers, corrupt politicians, bent detectives, fast women, and dangerous men, Blake is in a race against time to find—and stop—his potential assassin.
Packed with action and attitude, The Damage is a gripping gangland thriller for fans of the hit films The Town and Goodfellas.

What People are Saying About This
"Linskey has done for Newcastle what Ian Rankin has done for Edinburgh. . . . The writing is as fast and furious as a well-oiled machine gun. This alone is impressive, but he also possesses a talent for character development that elevates the story to a new level. An impressive and intelligent début." —New York Journal of Books on The Drop
"Intense, riveting sequel"— Publishers Weekly
"Top-notch gangster fiction from a writer to watch." — Booklist
