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.

Okay... Just Downloaded the Next In This Series!
Probably, I coulda' guessed the killer, but I liked listening to Mike and Maggie do it. James Hayman's created an intriguing ensemble up in Portland Maine and Stephen Mendel talks them into their own distinct lives. So far this series keeps me listening and looking forward to another visit Down East.
The tension among MIke, Maggie and everyone who fills McCAbe and Savage's chilly world is as cool as Hayman's plotting. He makes writing mysteries simple as falling through New England ice. Yep, I just bought "Darkness First" to keep up with these folks. Can't write a better recommendation, right?

Excellent Book set in Maine!
I really liked this book! The author does an excellent job painting a true view of Portland, Maine! The characters are interesting, and the story line was captivating! I didn't want to stop listening! The narrator does an excellent job with the appropriate amounts of influx in voice and speed of reading! Another excellent book!
