A frozen corpse means a big headache for Detective Michael McCabe 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.

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.
But it's only a matter of time before the killer strikes again...Following the success of the first instalment "The Cutting", "The Chill of Night" continues to follow Detective McCabe as he solves Portland's crimes. Fans of Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly will be hooked.
