Summary

Before a journalist died mysteriously in the middle of the night in St. Peter's Hospital, New York, she managed to pass a piece of paper to one of the nurses. In it contained the name of a church and the phone number of Kane, a black ex-cop now turned PI.
 
However, Kane has an unusual genetic disorder called Urbach-Wiethe and was laid off the force because he became reckless. But now he is about to use it for a good purpose. With a zeal to uncovering the cause of his friend's death, he inserts himself undercover as a member of the church where it all started. Soon he gets to discover a whole new depth of deception and secrets hidden within the tenets of this religious sect that is about to shake the very foundations of the most powerful nation on earth.
 
Kane has his African traditional maternal instincts, training, and experience as a former cop. But will these be enough to intervene in the impending doom? Or will his life be next in line sacrificed for the will of "God"? This is a story of betrayal, secrets, religious fanaticism, and power tussle."

    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.
