The Girl in the Glass: A McCabe and Savage Thriller by James Hayman

A young woman's death mimics her grandmother's.  Who would have killed her like that and why?

Witness Impulse and Edelweiss gave the me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 25th.

Aimee is just graduating from high school as valedictorian and she's having a great time at the big party her father threw for her.  Her stepsister is there, too, but Aimee knows she's his favorite and she's dressed to match the large painting he's acquired of her grandmother.  She makes a grand entrance and is on top of the world.  She's young, beautiful and has money.  She's having an affair with a teacher but she plans to turn that into more.  He's got other plans.  He's cutting off the affair and will go home to be with his family.  It doesn't matter who had what planned.  Neither live beyond that night...

When McCabe and Savage begin digging, they find family history has an impact on the present case.  They eliminate who they can and then wonder about what they haven't found.  Their one witness gets killed before she can talk to the police, almost on Maggie's doorstep.  When Maggie goes after the killer, she ends up in the hospital lucky to be alive.  They're getting closer, but will they survive it?

There's another murder before things are over.  I didn't guess who the killer was.  McCabe would like to date Maggie but she's met the security guard from the monied family and is out with him.  Maybe the case isn't the only thing that's over.  I'll have to read the next book to find out.
