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.
