From New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed McCabe and Savage series comes an electrifying new thriller of taut and twisted suspense.
On a freezing December night, Hannah Reindel leaps to her death from an old railway bridge into the rushing waters of the river below. Yet the real cause of death was trauma suffered twelve years earlier when Hannah was plucked from a crowd of freshman girls at a college fraternity party, drugged, and then viciously assaulted by six members of the college football team.
Those responsible have never faced or feared justice. Until now. A month after Hannah’s death, Joshua Thorne—former Holden College quarterback and now a Wall Street millionaire—is found murdered, his body bound to a bed and brutally mutilated.
When a second attacker dies in mysterious circumstances, detectives Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage know they must find the killer before more of Hannah’s attackers are executed. But they soon realize, these murders may not be simple acts of revenge, but something far more sinister.
The Girl on the Bridge is a compelling and harrowing tale of suspense that once read will not easily be forgotten.
In Hayman's disappointing fifth thriller to feature Portland, Maine, detectives Michael McCabe and Maggie Savage (after 2015's The Girl in the Glass), a sadistic killer appears to be targeting the perpetrators of a rape. When McCabe is contacted by Rachel Thorne, who claims her husband, Josh, has gone missing while on a business trip, he and Savage are skeptical, but when she shows them a picture of her husband tied to a bed with a sign that says "Rapists Get What Rapists Deserve," they're compelled to act. During the investigation, they discover Josh's connection to Hannah Reindel, who was raped by a group of athletes 12 years earlier when she was a college student and recently committed suicide by jumping off a bridge. Hannah's husband is a suspect, but McCabe and Savage are dubious. Red herrings lace the melodramatic narrative, which is frequently bogged down by unnecessary procedural details. In addition, the tendency of male characters to comment on women's looks undermines the author's effort to sensitively portray the trauma and aftermath of rape. Agents: Meg Ruley and Rebecca Scherer, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
