Allow Me To Recommend....

Earlier this year, the book "The Girl in The Glass" by James Hayman was offered on one of those Amazon "Kindle Deal of the Day" emails, it looked interesting, so I bought it.  It was terrific.

The book centered around Portland, Maine police detectives Michael McCabe and Margaret "Maggie" Savage, and the crime involved the death of a young heiress in Portland who was murdered in an amazingly similar fashion to the death of her great-great-grandmother that took place 108 years earlier.  It was a fast paced story and a great mystery with, in the case of McCabe and Savage, terrific characters.

This led me to see if there were other books in the series, and indeed there were. In fact, "The Girl in The Glass" was the fourth novel in the series, and I immediately ordered the other three.

In chronological order, the books are "The Cutting", "The Chill of the Night", and "Darkness First".  You needn't read them in the order in which they were written, but if you are obsessive about things like that, Amazon is making it easy for you to do so.  All four of them can be purchased for you Kindle for $5.96, or, you can buy them individually for $.99 for the first three books, and $2.99 for "The Girl in the Glass".  I mean, they are practically giving them away.

You can also learn more about the series and about author James Hayman at

The bad news is that I have now finished all four books, and have to wait until Hayman comes out with a new one, which probably won't be for another year or so.

So, if you are in the market for a good mystery/police/crime novel, give any or all of these "McCabe and Savage Thrillers", as they are being marketed, a shot.  I do not think that you will be disappointed.
