"'Damaged people are dangerous.'"
5 stars"

The story of this man is one that I could not put down. It continually surpised me; I just could not help myself and had to keep turning the page.

The story is about a man who, from the outside, looks like he has it all; the wife, the career, the family. That is until he meets his son's new lover, Anna. From the beginning, there is an attraction between the two, and he tells us how he us powerless to stop what he wants to have. There are many moments in the book that you can relate to- the moment when you are in the middle of doing something and you have a choice; to do the right thing or to do the wrong thing.

Some people are damaged; their pasts have scarred them and they know that they can get through anything, as they have already been to the bottom and back.

Emotionally moving and as others have siad ‘hypnotic’.


A successful doctor and politican arrives at middle ages and the high point of his career, having pursued a dutiful and a passionless life. His life has been a 'good performance', until as chance meeting with Anna, his son's lover. This strange and secretive woman, emotionally crippled by her past, unlocks the violent reality behind his carefully created facade, and his consuming obsession threatens everyone around them. Only as he spirals towards destruction does he understand the truth of Anna's warning - damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.
