Senator Paxton’s young female aide has been found murdered, and it is up to Maggie to run damage control and prevent the scandal from growing. Thrown back into the Paxtons’ glamorous world, Maggie is unexpectedly flooded with memories from the stormy years in high school, when her friendship with Anabelle was dramatically severed after a tragedy that neither of them has been able to forget. As Maggie gets further embroiled in the lives of the Paxtons, she realizes that the ties of her old friendship are stronger than she thinks. Riveting and suspenseful, Damage Control examines our craving for celebrity and spectacle and how far the bonds of friendship can stretch before they break forever.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Denise Hamilton scores her largest and greatest triumph: Damage Control is a great mystery, and, much more rarely, a superb psychological thriller. Kudos to this brilliant talent.” James Ellroy, New York Times bestselling author
“Hamilton does a beautiful job of describing LA neighborhoods and unraveling its secrets.” Washington Post
“You can’t beat LA-based noir for moodiness, and no one writes it better than Denise Hamilton.” USA Today
“Excellent…The suspenseful denouement should please Hamilton fans.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Denise Hamilton dives deeper into the menace behind the glamour of Southern California in this riveting stand-alone thriller…In a novel that marries celebrity culture, surf noir, and the bonds of friendship, Hamilton is at the top of her game.” Kirkus Reviews
“This is such a superb book! I stayed glued to the pages from the first to the last. Hamilton is a veritable poet of Los Angeles, capturing its spirit and images with clear eyes and love. She is also able to step into the world of teens and follow them into maturity as few writers of adult fiction can achieve. Her prose is gorgeous, funny, wry, and realistic.” Barbara Peters, The Poisoned Pen
