Now filmed as Obsession on Netflix - starring Richard Armitage and Charlie Murphy The New York Times bestselling masterpiece - a daring look at the dangers of obsession and the depth of its shattering consequences 'Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.' Damage is the gripping story of a man's desperate obsession and scandalous love affair. He is a man who appears to have everything: wealth, a beautiful wife and children, and a prestigious political career in Parliament. But his life lacks passion, and his aching emptiness drives him to an all-consuming and ultimately catastrophic relationship with his son's fiancée. 'A taut, sinister tale of erotic obsession' Vanity Fair 'The effect is powerful: here is naked obsession, sulfurous, total, scarcely possible to live with' Financial Times 'The reader looks on with mingled shock and fascination. A tour de force' New York Times 'Unputdownable is here, for once, not hyperbolic' Ruth Rendell 'Damage is a masterpiece' Washington Post 'Passionate, elegant, ruthless' Iris Murdoch
