The Chill of Night (McCabe and Savage Series #2) by James Hayman

A frozen corpse.
A missing witness.
Strange voices that aren't there.

One cold night, Lainie Goff, a glamorous young attorney on the fast track to a partnership at Portland's top firm, is found frozen in the trunk of her BMW on the local fishing pier.

Detectives Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage quickly uncover a long list of suspects: Lainie's boss, who was also her lover; an ex-priest who runs a shelter for runaway teens; an abusive stepfather who raped Lainie as a teen; and a creepy landlord who seems to know more than he should about her private life.

Still, there is no hard evidence until a mentally ill young woman who hears voices gives an island cop an eyewitness account he doesn't take seriously.

But when she too disappears, McCabe and Savage find themselves in a desperate race against time to stop a vicious killer before he rids himself of the only person who knows who he is.

The first sentence of the synopsis caught my attention. Not in a weird, creepy, I want seek out dead bodies kind of way. But a book that is unique and as great as the others James Hayman has in the series. The story takes place in Detective McCabe's territory. Which for a small town, is very rare and disturbing. Each detail of the what transpires is pertinent to solving what happened to the victim. This is the second book I have read part of this series. Both books were nail-biting, intense and intriguing. The characters are great. Believable and not overbearing as many I have read before. I know little to nothing about detective work. So it is great to read a book that makes it easy for the new readers to comprehend the Crime/Mystery genre. The McCabe and Savage Series has captured my attention from page one. I would absolutely recommend this to all. It so much more than a Murder mystery.

Very good. The mystery and detective components are outstanding. This is a very well developed plot, with attention to detail. Very solid characters too. I would recomend this to fans of John Sanford.

From his success with his first thriller, The Cutting, Jim Hayman now brings us a riveting, knuckle-cracking second thriller, The Chill of Night. We meet Lainie, a ladder-climbing legal firm associate, giving her sexual favors to a partner in the firm in hopes of an early promotion to that lofty status. Soon, Lainie turns up stone-dead & frozen solid & stuffed in the trunk of her BMW. Meet Mike McCabe, former NY cop, now a detective with the Portland PD. Quickly, the medical examiner determines the cause of immediate death as pithing (when you read the novel, you'll find out just what that is). They also discover a mysterious biblical quotation on the body & cocaine in the car. Soon we meet Abby, a young woman with mental health issues who lives on Hart Island across from the city. She watches neighbor's summer houses in the off-season. She is too good at her job, which she takes seriously -- she witnesses the murder, but no one will believe her. She is frightened and goes into hiding. McCabe surfaces several potential killers, and there is a lot of suspense trying to find Abby and make her feel safe. As in all good riveting thrillers, there are several murder suspects, all with possible motive. This "who-done-it" has a surprise ending that rivals the surprise endings of other more established thriller writers. You will not want to put the book down.

Mike McCabe, Hayman's memorable former NYU film student now detective juggles death, his divorce, and teenaged daugther when a sexy lawyer with a soft spot is found dead by a most novel method. Portland provides the real background for this story which sears to the end.
