Product description

Product Description

The storm of '87 had been the greatest, most ferocious storm to have hit Britain in centuries. The suffering that ensued was plentiful, but none more so than that of little Matthew Mason, whose parents were brutally murdered in the midst of the storm by a homeless man desperate to find shelter.
After 25 years of torment, Matthew is released from a mental institute under the watchful eye and care of Tammy Atkins, a care worker with a secret history of alcohol abuse and self-harm.
As Matthew struggles to adapt to his new found liberty, he finds himself continuously plagued by the demons of his past. Haunted by strange and ghastly images and urges, Matthew sets himself upon a path of vengeance; determined to seek out his parents' killer and put his demons to rest once and for all.
'The Damaged' is a disturbing psychological thriller, delving deep into the darkest depths of the human psyche.

By I taylor TOP 100 REVIEWER on 18 March 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
Tammy is a carer who just can’t seem to care for herself. She has a drinking problem that ruined her relationship with both her partner and her daughter, and no matter how many AA meetings she attends she doesn’t feel connected to anything or anyone. She is broken but when she meets her new client, Matthew, she sees that he is so much more broken than her. The difference between them is that he is optimistic, especially when it comes to her.
This book is very intense, in that we become very embroiled in Tammy and Matthew’s thought process. The fact that they are so incredibly broken and slipping down a hopeless slope into the abyss makes the reader cling on to the hope that things will get better. I won’t give any spoilers away, you will just have to see for yourself.
The characters are exceptionally three dimensional and you can’t but help feel that they are real, so when something happens to them the reader is transfixed. The book really drew me in and gave me plenty to think about. Within the genre of horror, this book has hit more than one subgenre. It has a definite psychological horror theme but it also shows the horror of human nature, and how easily life can tumble out of control. Mental illness within the horror genre is particularly disturbing, and this book really explores that.

I love the way Simon writes, it reminds me of the style of Dean Koontz.
Graphic in places, and lots of twists and turns. It feels like you are experiencing everything the characters are.
An awesome read for fans of Horror.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I hope for more from Simon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unknown book. 20 November 2016
By jdwill68 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Another book that I can't remember how I obtained it. Started slow and the first half was a detailed account of how the two main characters accrued their "baggage". Almost quit reading, but one character turns into a serial killer and the other is a big part of his life. Enough gory action to qualify the author as "one sick puppy". Going to Look for something else by the author. Later tater!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational! 3 February 2016
By Fans of Modern Horror - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Whoa! Psychosis or possession? Or both? I'm not completely sure but this was an amazing read! This story took off with a heartbreaking tale of a broken family, then moved to another tragic tale of a mother who made mistakes...but wait; combine the two and hold on!! Highly entertaining and most highly recommend to all fans of modern horror.

The story is awesome. No spoilers, but I love the way Matthew's insanity and the things his imagination conjures up are described as if they are real.

4.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling book 5 April 2016

While this was a very gruesome, dark story, it held interest and was very suspenseful. Some of it was very explicit.
