Debut of a roaring and prodigal talent ... Not so much a novel as a life experience. Don't miss it.
Good background, with an on-the-nail summary of Northern Ireland wheeling and dealing . . . and a wild Celtic streak that marks Conway as one to watch.
Cruel, violent and lyrical, it's Iain Banks meeting Alan Warner in Tom Clancy's missile silo. Excellent.
A debut novel to rival The Beach.
Imagine John le Carre on bad acid - edgy, twisted and very, very dark.
Good, youthful thriller, with tough, druggy characters, good Scottish locations and lost of action.
Bears comparison to Iain Banks at his best.
A powerhouse of a book that sends off literary sparks in all directions.
Hard bleak and full on, this is one to carry around with you.
A very fine thriller...A hardboiled page-turner for the slacker generation.
Dipping the ever-successful elements of guns and narcotics into an atmosphere of constant psychosis, DAMAGED is surprisingly believable.
succeeds in painting a portrait of the world at once attractive and repellent
