I have now read books One and Two, and if One was wonderful, Two was glorious. This author is a real find. No, that's a tad condescending. I will be forever grateful to myself for finding this author; not hidden away, but in no way highlighted or calling attention to himself. Just "The luck of the Kindle!" But, quite seriously, this man is WAY up there, with the best of the best, the Sherlock Holmes books, the Woman With The Dragon Tattoo books, John Irving, the best of John Grisham, Gillian Flynn. He is brilliant, his stories are complex in the best possible way, he is a writer working a genre for all it's worth, yet with the full use of his highly unusual, and astonishing gifts of insight, empathy, humanity and love. The characters, particularly McCabe, of course, are ALL distinct, layered, flawed, human, worthy of our attention, and are all fascinating unto themselves, not just as cogs moving the machine forward. I feel like, I don't know, maybe the world could be okay, reading a book of this quality. I know that's goofy. But, be it crime fiction, "mere" fiction, or any other labels and generalities one might make about works of art, that is what this book is; a work of art. And, art, created by a true artist, not only engages us, but changes us. I'm just grateful that this author, who is clearly brilliant enough to have succeeded at any number of high-paying professions, chose, instead, to be a story-teller. A profession of the heart and soul, not of the reasoning mind and the expanding bank balance (although some authors become deliciously wealthy, and may that be the case here).Just a couple of personal notes; the book is elegant. Its architecture is classic, it's design utterly intentional and seemingly effortless. Which takes a great deal of effort. I know that "elegant" is an odd word to use for a crime novel involving multiple "pithings', but none-other will do. Also, as a gay man, I very much appreciate the authors inclusion of gay people among his characters; sometimes because they fit the narrative, and sometimes because the world also includes, among its characters, gay people. The author's lack of condescension, and his avoidance of the sensational, regarding gay characters, adds a lovely thread to this masterly tapestry - a thread too often left unchosen or dyed far too garish a color. I shall now immediately begin reading book Three, just as I immediately began book Two after book One, creating in my mind a single, singular, highly marvelous and engaging experience. Onward!

This is a thrilling ride through police procedure. Detective Sergeant Mike McCabe is called out to a murder in the middle of the night. A woman is found frozen in the trunk of her car. It is discovered that she was a young up and coming attorney in a high powered law firm. With his partner, Maggie Savage and the rest of his team hot on the trail of the killer, we are treated to a tense search for the killer.

Discovering that the victim, Lainie, was having an affair with her boss and that she was turned down for a promotion to partner in the firm adds to the tension. At the same time, a young schizophrenic woman is not believed as she reports a murder to the local police on Hart's Island, and island offshore from the coast of Maine. McCabe and Savage become concerned for her safety even though no jury would ever believe her story. The victim, Lainie, was also involved with a local half way house called the Sanctuary, a place where abused and troubled teens can go for safety. Led by an ex-priest who has some issues of his own.

Another suspect is the pervy owner of the apartment house in which Lainie lived. He is written so well in the book as to give one shivers.

Who is the murderer? Concluding with a tense cliff top ending, the murderer was a surprise to me.

Very well written and steady paced, this book is a keeper. Keep them coming Mr. Hayman!!

If you like murder mysteries that keep you guessing, then you will appreciate this one. Mr. Hayman develops a sense of place without overwhelming with description. I was freezing in Portland, Maine in January (the time and place for this novel) while reading this book in Phoenix, Arizona. I enjoyed the way the author provided looks into the characters' thoughts and worries through sharp dialogue and first-person stream of consciousness. No need for clever gimmicks or outlandish endings--just tough, slogging through clues police work. I had to give this a five-star review-- no needless words in this story but plenty of depth. I look forward to many more from stories from Mr. Hayman.

Lainie Goff's an up-and-coming attorney when her frozen body is found in the trunk of a car down on a wharf off Commercial Street. Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage are assigned to find the murderer.
I've been skipping around through Mr. Hayman's series, and this one was probably the one I've liked the least. I knew who the murderer was about halfway through the book, and found the story fairly predictable. I do always like the Portland locations and recognized Hart Island as Peak's Island out in Casco Bay. It's an enjoyable series and this is a good quick read, but just not my favorite.

James Hayman is a master of both plot and character. He demonstrates both The Chill of Night. His characters are not only complex, they're unique and far more nuanced than the characters in most mysteries. For instance, Hayman deals with his main character, McCabe's difficulty in moving on from a past relationship and how he uses his job to distract from his challenges. The secondary character of Abby, a witness to the murder is particularly memorable as she's a schizophrenic desperately trying to set her life in order. We root for them all, while trying to unravel the identity of the killer. The setting of Portland, Maine adds a distinctive feel to all of his books. The Chill of Night is a very satisfying mystery. Looking forward to reading more from Hayman.

McCabe continues to work on his personal life, which is and will always be affected by his love of being a good, if not the best, detective. This latest case hits too close to home. When he reports to the crime scene, is the victim really a family member? This time the players are an ambitious lawyer, a former priest, a peeping tom landlord, psychiatrist, schizophrenic; who wouldn't love a mystery with all those characters. They can't all be murderers...or can they? It takes the likes of McCabe and Savage to solve this one.
