THE CUTTING by James Hayman (Minotaur)
Sometimes you just can't get away from it. Detective Michael McCabe thought he'd done it. After all, how could Portland, Maine compare to homicide in Manhattan. Of course, that was before the body of a young teenager was found with her heart surgically removed from her body. Then, amazingly, a young woman disappears on the same day the body is found. Portland's crime rate is soon to skyrocket. The Cutting is a hard-hitting police procedural with no quirky characters or comic relief. It is the story of a horrific crime spree and the efforts of a caring detective who works desperately to end it. Michale McCabe is a cop you'd want on your side if the unthinkable happened to you or your family.
