The mutilated body of a young woman. The town doctor lying comatose in the road. And 150 tablets of Canadian OxyContin. This is the havoc that a merciless killer has wreaked on a sleepy Maine seaport.
As detectives Maggie Savage and Michael McCabe investigate, they realize the man they are after does not exist. Nobody knows his real name. Nobody has seen his face. But everybody fears his blade.
The only one who may know the murderer's true identity is an 11-year-old girl - who has vanished into thin air.
Taut, twisting, and starring two unforgettable heroes, Darkness First will thrill fans of John Sandford and C. J. Box.

McCabe & Savage is worth a listen...
First I want to say what an excellent performance Stephen Mendel gives with these books. I will certainly look for more books with him as the narrator.
This is the third in the McCabe/Savage series and I think each one gets better and the characters are fleshed out a little more then in the previous.
This book was really good with a complex plot that kept me on the edge wondering just who would escape with their lives.
Pregnant girl goes into local doctor's office, refuses to give her real name, suspicious doctor wants to help girl, doctor snoops in backpack, girl catches doctor, girl leaves doctor's office in a hurry, girl gets murdered and doctor is almost killed but instead ends up comatose in hospital, one of the main protagonist's (Maggie Savage) brother is framed. This is how this book opens - Wow, I need a breather. The killer is known only by an alias, yet known by his true identity in the community by many. It's up to McCabe and Savage to solve the case and the crimes committed by this individual.
Really good series, I recommend all three so far!
