In this rapid paced follow up to Scar Tissue, Lucas finds the girl in L.A., but also finds a corpse in the apartment where she’s been staying. What began as a favor for a friend spins out of control and has Lucas caught in a world damaged by corporate crime, marital infidelity,and murder.
Lucky Lucas is back in The Damage,set in the colorful, edgy, and seductive city of San Francisco. Lucky Lucas, a widowed ex-Police Detective, has relocated from Southern California to San Francisco to be near his son’s family. As a favor to a friend, Lucas agrees to locate Diane Berger, an eighteen year old girl who has suddenly disappeared from her wealthy parent’s Russian Hill home. Lucas locates the girl in Venice Beach, but not before stumbling upon a corpse in the apartment where she has been staying.

It started good. Unfortunately, half the way, it lost focus, often skimming from one event to another. Some of the events were a bit funny too, like the counter-blackmail thing, the cop stakeout, sniper in stadium, to name a few. And there's the serious editing problem too.
