9780062304575: The Damage (A David Blake Thriller)

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.

About the Author:

Howard Linskey’s other acclaimed thrillers include The Drop, also available from Witness Impulse.

From Booklist:

A sniper terrorizing Glasgow kills four persons randomly, then hits the legendary lawman who’s after him. More than a year later, David Blake—a white-collar gangster who heads Mob operations in Newcastle—figures out the sniper murders. It’s all in a day’s work for Blake, who has taken over Bobby Mahoney’s operation after killing Mahoney and setting up housekeeping with Mahoney’s daughter, Sarah, in Thailand. As he establishes legitimate businesses to launder the money made mainly from drugs and prostitution, Blake is canny enough to handle a cheating subordinate, a former rival, and an unreliable supplier, always short of starting all-out gang warfare. But it’s a dangerous, high-stress business, and when—despite all precautions—his brother is shot and Blake himself is nearly killed, it’s time to find the traitor inside his own organization. This sequel to Linskey’s debut, The Drop (2011), is an action-packed account of a surprisingly sympathetic protagonist who lives on the edge and finds lawbreaking on a large scale “about as good as it gets” in the real world. Top-notch gangster fiction from a writer to watch. --Michele Leber
