Things have been going too well for Daisy. Her murdered lover, Eddie Lane, has left her comfortably off and his son little Eddie is adorable and a constant reminder of his father. The new man in her life, South London gangster Roy Kemp, looks out for her and is kind to little Eddie. But someone is watching Daisy's every movement, like a predator choosing the perfect moment to pounce. He is a man with murder in his heart—a man obsessed with Daisy and enraged that she turned to Roy Kemp for love instead of him. He plans to teach Daisy a lesson she will never forget. Set in 1966, Damaged Goods re-acquaints us with several memorable characters from the previous books—notably Daisy's friend Vera, queen of her massage parlor and the best friend a girl ever had, and Gosport policeman Detective Sergeant Vinnie Endersby who puts his job on the line for Daisy....

Damaged Goods Reviews
Brilliant!! Straight onto book 4 - I'm officially a June Hampson addict!!
This book is due to be published in February 2008. I got it as an Advance Reading Copy to review for Waterstones. It's actually the third in a series by June Hampson and I havent yet read the first two. Easy to read as a stand alone though once past the first couple of chapters where there are quite a lot of characters to get used to.Very similar in style to Martina Cole and Mandasue Heller, set in 60s London and Hampshire and featuring gangster style characters and mentioning the likes of the Krays. A fast paced book, not too violent,quite a bit of swearing, but on the whole a good, easy read.Would like to read her others now.
WowOmg another great readJust love daisy lane and all the characters in this bookRead this over two evening'sRight onto the next adventure with daisy and vera
Loved this whole series!I enjoyed how it was similar in a sense to Martina Cole's stories without trying to imitate her style!
I read June Hampsons 'Broken Bodies' and had to order this one as it continues the life of Daisy Lane. The characters are fabulous and the last book made me anticipate this read just as much. This particular book carries on Daisys life with her gangster boyfriend Roy Kemp. However when she is abducted and has to fight for her survival it changes her outlook on life. This story was as good if not better than the last one and I think June Hampson is somebody to watch out for in the future. If her books get better with each one she writes she will be one of my favourite authors in the not too distant future. Recommended if you like Mandasue Heller and Kevin lewis and the like.
Another great instalment of the Daisy Lane series.Without spoiling the book, Damaged Goods focusses on Daisy Lanes disappearance and the struggles she has to overcome. I read this in a day and enjoyed discovering the new characters Hampson had created. I did feel the last 100 pages dragged somewhat and lacked the excitement that first part of the book provided. Reading the first two books, twists and turns appeared throughout the stories and I had hoped for a more explosive ending.
Haven't read any of the other Daisy Lane books but that didn't matter. I actually enjoyed the book, it's gritty and not badly written; my only criticism would be that the end felt like it was hurried.
The third in the Daisy Lane series and by far the most violent and hardest of them so far. I think this has been my favourite one. Having read the three in close succession I feel like I know the characters, the girls are like old friends now. Look forward to reading the fourth one.
Enjoyable, hard to put down
Had gone off the daisy books for a while but back into them again, great book
