Product Description Someone’s watching... Zoe McCabe is a beautiful young actress on the verge of stardom who has been basking in the standing ovations and rave reviews she’s been getting from critics and fans alike for her portrayal of Desdemona in an off-Broadway production of Othello. As she takes her final bows, Zoe has no idea that, seated in the audience, a man has been studying her night after night, performance after performance. A man whose carefully crafted plans are for the young actress to take a starring role in a far deadlier production he has created just for her. Portland, Maine detectives Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage are settling into the new rhythm of their relationship when McCabe gets a late night call from his brother Bobby that Zoe, McCabe's favorite niece and Bobby’s daughter, has suddenly disappeared. The NYPD is certain Zoe abduction is the work of the man the tabloids have dubbed “The Star Struck Strangler,” a killer who has been kidnapping, abusing and finally strangling one beautiful young performer after another. Bobby begs McCabe to return to the New York City crime beat he’d left behind so many years ago, to work his old connections, and to help find Zoe before her time runs out. The stakes for McCabe and Savage have never been higher. Or more personal. And suddenly the race is on to stop a vicious attacker, before the McCabe family is torn apart beyond repair. Review “James Hayman’s edgy, ingenious novels rival the best of Lisa Gardner, Jeffery Deaver, and Kathy Reichs. A Fatal Obsession is his finest to date: a ferocious live-wire thriller starring two of the most appealing cops in contemporary fiction.” (A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window) “ The Girl on the Bridge combines the pleasures of a classic police procedural with the righteous satisfaction of a revenge thriller, and a great twist. Every crime fiction fan will find something to enjoy here.” (Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Paranoia and The Switch) “Turning someone else’s terror, pain, and even death into diverting entertainment is at the core of the mystery writer’s craft, and here Hayman offers a stunning lesson in how to do it… Everything goes right here: pacing, mood, and lean, elegant writing.” ( Booklist) “The author had me guessing to the end. His plot crafting made me think of Martin Cruz Smith and Scott Turow at their best.” (Portland Press Herald on THE GIRL IN THE GLASS) Praise for The Girl in the Glass: “The author had me guessing to the end. His plot crafting made me think of Martin Cruz Smith and Scott Turow at their best.” (Portland Press Herald on THE GIRL IN THE GLASS) “A riveting police procedural that gripped me on page one and never let go. Hayman paints a frighteningly real scenario of every parent’s worst nightmare. The subsequent murders are either revenge or justice -- maybe both. A first-rate story-teller at the top of his game.” (Robert Dugoni, bestselling author of My Sister's Grave) About the Author James Hayman is the New York Times bestselling author of the McCabe and Savage thrillers The Cutting, The Chill of Night, Darkness First, and The Girl in the Glass, which combined have sold more than half a million copies.
