The Cutting


In the foggy pre-dawn light of a September morning, a young woman is abducted as she jogs through the elegant streets of Portland, Maine’s West End. That night, the nude, mutilated body of a teenaged girl is found, dumped in an abandoned scrap yard, brutally raped, her heart surgically cut from her body.

Are the two crimes linked? Detective Sergeant Michael McCabe, head of Portland’s Crimes Against People squad isn’t sure. But in a city where there were only two cases of homicide the entire preceding year, the coincidence of timing seems compelling. And McCabe soon finds himself in a race against time to rescue the missing woman before she too becomes a victim of an evil and deadly conspiracy.

Against the vivid backdrop of Portland’s cobblestone streets and working waterfront, McCabe and his partner, Detective Maggie Savage, pursue a brilliant but morally corrupt killer who believes he alone has the right to decide who shall live and who shall die.
