Description

The mutilated body of a young woman. The town doctor lying comatose in the road. A hundred and fifty 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 eleven-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.

    Superb writing. Suspense. Keeps me on edge - thinking I have figured out the villain. When, surprise, it is someone else. This is the third book I have read of this author. He is new to me. I am a new fan. Plan on reading anything he writes! Of James Hayman.

    Great series. Wasn't sure if Detective McCabe was going to be in this one. He was in the background for awhile. Once again love the story and characters.

    Normally if a book grabs my attention, I have to read it straight through if time allows. I couldn't do that with this book. I couldn't deal with what I guessed would happen next, so actually took three days to finish it. I figured out early on as to who the killer was, but it didn't ruin the suspense for me. Great story.
  • Amazing

    This book was so good. There were times I became extremely nervous for the characters in the story. Very vivid. I loved it. Now this is what I like to read. We need more stories like this. James Hayman is officially my favorite. Bravo!!!!

    Good character building. Good solid story. What made the book for me was the fact that I really bought the characters and cared about how it ended. And the ending was a perfect one for me. I will look for more of this authors works.
