Winner of the Anthony Award for Best First Novel
Lily Moore fled to Spain to get away from her troubled, drug-addicted younger sister, Claudia. When Claudia is found dead in a bathtub on the anniversary of their mother's suicide, Lily must return to New York to deal with the aftermath.
The situation shifts from tragic to baffling when the body at the morgue turns out to be that of a stranger who had been using Claudia's identity. The real Claudia had vanished months earlier, reappearing briefly on the day the impostor died. As Claudia transforms from victim to suspect in the eyes of the police, Lily becomes determined to find her before they do.
Is Claudia actually missing or is she playing an elaborate con game? And who's responsible for the body in the tub? Determined to learn the truth at any cost, Lily is unprepared for the terrible toll it will take on her and those she loves.

Review quote

"[A] razor sharp mystery debut. . . . Davidson offers a great portrait of sisterly love, despite a dysfunctional past, as well as a highly satisfying mystery."--"Publishers Weekly" on "The Damage Done"
"Hilary Davidson makes a stunning debut with "The Damage Done." It's a smart crime novel, peopled with sinister characters and clever twists you won't see coming. Davidson grabs you by the throat with her opening, and doesn't let go till the end."--Linda Fairstein, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Hell Gate" and "Lethal Legacy
""Sinking us into the noir New York of Sara Gran and Charlie Huston, Hilary Davidson's lush novel "The Damage Done "delivers on all counts, offering both slow-burn suspense and creeping pathos. Taking the classic story of hero's quest to solve the riddle of a wayward sister, it's ultimately a tale of lost women, victims and victimizers, damaging and perilously damaged. A rich, haunting debut."--Megan Abbott, Edgar-winning author of "Die a Lit
