~ Book Synopsis ~

The first novel in the nationally bestselling McCabe and Savage series—perfect for fans of John Sandford and CJ Box.

Someone is stealing the hearts of beautiful women...

Detective Mike McCabe moved from a top homicide job with the NYPD to Portland, Maine to leave his failed marriage and suspicions of wrongdoing behind, and to find a more peaceful life for himself and his 13 year old daughter.

But the small New England city is not nearly as safe as he thought.

On a warm September night, a missing high-school athlete is found dead in a scrap metal yard, her heart removed from her body with surgical precision.As outrage over the killingspreads, a young business woman disappears while out on a morning jog.

McCabe is certain both crimes are the work of one man—a murderer skilled in cardiac surgery who is using his scalpel to target young women. With the clock ticking, McCabe and his partner Maggie Savage find themselves in a desperate race against time to find and rescue the missing woman before she becomes the next victim of the sadistic killer's blade.

It is no secret that I love a good mystery. The kind that has me so wrapped up in the pages that I can't put it down. Mysteries are what got me into the reading and will continue to stay close to my heart. Hayman writes a thriller that has you on the edge of your seat. 

I love McCabe and Savage! Although this is Hayman's first in the series I read the books a bit out of order. So for me I had already met my new favorite leading detective team. Like Hayman's other books you are hooked from page one. This book features one of the cruelest of evils. You will have to read to find out, but it is definitely one of the best thrillers out there. 

Why do I love McCabe and Savage so much? They are real. Real people with real problems. No super strength or special abilities, just good detectives with real emotions and reactions. Truly a wonderful read that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire read. If you love a good mystery then you will adore this read!
