he Girl in the Glass
by James Hayman weaves a tale that grabs your attention immediately and won't let go until the last page. The only disappointment is that the story doesn't go on for at least a hundred more pages.
imee has a half sister, Julia, who is just three days younger than her. She plays a big role, as she is considered to be a person of interest in Aimee's murder. Aimee must have been a hard person to like. Her father spoiled her outrageously without realizing the person he was creating. He paid a high price for his indulgences.
etectives Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage enter the case. They are known for their ability to bring swift closure to cases that baffle others. (Other books in the series are
The Chill of Night
.) As well as tantalizing his readers with a mystery that is almost unsolvable, author Hayman creates a fictional island that we all wish we could visit.
ayman portrays Savage and McCabe as very real, caring individuals with their own emotional problems. As we learn of this part of their lives, we fall in love with both of them and wish we ourselves could be there to hold their hands as they wrestle with decisions that they have to make about their personal lives.
