Witness, or next victim?
Lainie Goff thinks she has it all. A glamorous young Portland attorney with the brains and looks to match her ambitions, she's on the fast track to a partnership. Until one cold winter night she discovers that her belief in her ability to handle any situation was misplaced.
Now she's just a frozen corpse in the boot of a car at the end of Portland Fish Pier.
And a problem for homicide detective Michael McCabe.
Luckily for McCabe, there's a witness. A mentally disturbed young woman named Abby Quinn saw what happened to Lainie. Unfortunately, Abby mysteriously goes missing the very same night. With a victim who'd known more than her share of bad guys, a list of suspects that seems to get longer and longer, and his only witness missing, McCabe has got his work cut out.
