Synopsis

The Damage Done by James Oswald

The memory won't fade as McLean struggles to find the elusive connections between a series of gruesomely strange deaths in the city. His investigations begin to concern the powers that be - and once again, McLean's stubborn refusal to toe the line puts his career, and possibly his life in danger. In chasing the monsters of the present, McLean must also confront shadows of the past - but at what cost? Is it too late to undo the damage that has been done...
