About this ebook

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 killing spreads, 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 was a good book for the most part. I was ready to give it four stars up until the very end. There was a lot of buildup, great storytelling, but it ended more abruptly than I expected. It left a lot of questions unanswered, like it had to be finished all of a sudden. I am not a big fan of book series. If the story continues in the next book, I guess I won't find out.

I have already purchased what five books. Even though you promised me a freebie! I didn't know they were excerpts: The girl on the bridge I read the excerpts; I love your talent as a writer. Can you tell me how to become one the paid readers. You know read and tell if it's fantastic or boring until the middle or the end.
