Hannah was a normal girl starting in her first year of college. Her
boyfriend Evan begs her to come with him to a party at one of the
fraternities. Hannah really didn't want to go, but it was the only way
Evan could get in. Little did they both know that this would change both
of their lives and several others...
Fast forward about 20 years. Hannah and Evan are now married, but far
from being happy. Hannah is still having nightmares of what happened
that night at the party. Hannah was assaulted by several football
players. Hannah can't handle it anymore and on Christmas Eve she
jumps into an icy river and dies.
Meanwhile one of Hannah's assaulters, former quarterback Josh
Thorne is enjoying his life as a Wall Street millionaire, with his wife
Rachael. Charlie is also enjoying his life with his wife and children. One
night Josh is out at a bar and approaches a woman named Norah. Josh
has never been faithful to his wife has no problem going with this
woman for a quickie... until he's found savagely murdered. Soon after
this, another attacker is also found dead after being brutalized.
Detectives Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage are on the case, trying to
stop more of these unfortunately related murders keep happening to
Hannah's attackers from 20 years ago.
THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE is such a
great book. James Hayman certainly knows how to write a book that
will keep people guessing from the first page to the last. I was
completely shocked at the ending. But I loved it. One of the best
mysteries I have read in a long time. It did have its sad parts; Hannah
going through what she did and not being able to handle it. I also
enjoyed watching McCabe and Savage work, and hope to read many
more books in the McCabe and
Savage thriller series. The book goes between past to present,
and is done in a way so readers get the full story. If you want a really
great book and you have a few hours, pick this one up and enjoy.
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.
