After twenty-five years writing advertising for Madison Avenue ad agencies, James Hayman moved from New York to Portland, Maine in 2001. Recognizing that Portland would make an almost perfect setting for a thriller series, Hayman started writing his first Mike McCabe thriller, The Cutting. The Cutting was published by St. Martin’s/Minotaur in 2009. The second McCabe novel, The Chill of Night, came out last year. Both books have been published all over the world and have been translated into half a dozen languages. Hayman’s third thriller, Darkness First, which takes place in Downeast Maine and features McCabe’s partner, Detective Maggie Savage was published as an ebook by Harper Collins in October and in paper on March 25, 2014.
