Overview

New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein takes readers behind the scenes of New York City's theater world -- from Lincoln Center to the lights of Broadway -- in a riveting new novel rich with her trademark blend of cutting-edge legal issues, skillful detective work, and heart-stopping suspense.

Teaming up with longtime friends -- NYPD's Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace -- Assistant D.A. Alex Cooper investigates the disappearance of world-famous dancer Natalya Galinova, who has suddenly vanished backstage at Lincoln Center's Metropolitan Opera House -- during a performance. The three colleagues are soon drawn into the machinations of New York City's secretive theatrical community, where ambition takes many forms, including those most deadly.

Meanwhile, Alex is working on a very different case, using a creative technique to nab a physician who has been drugging women in order to assault them. As Dr. Sengor eludes capture, Alex must navigate the new investigative world of DFSA -- drug-facilitated sexual assault -- intent on proving him guilty.

"Death Dance is a spellbinding thriller combining a former prosecutor's fresh insight into hot-button legal issues with the unique history and spectacle of New York theater, and its shocking twists make this novel Linda Fairstein's most chilling adventure yet.

Maybe this book suffered from being abridged, but I was disappointed in it. Not much character development. I would not recommend it.

I do not know much about dance but enjoyed the book because of all the historical information about NYC and the Broadway shows and theatres. This is my 3rd Fairstein book and they are fast paced interesting and a bit of suspense in each book. Look forward to more books by this author.

This book was poor at best. The narrator was not impactful. For one who is used to the power of a James Patterson novel, this was a let-down.
