Publisher's Summary

Teaming up with longtime friends, NYPD's Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, assistant DA 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. Among Galinova's lovers is Joe Berk, the colorful, strong-willed boss of the Berk Organization, one of four family companies that own all the legitimate theaters on Broadway. The aging ballerina was using Berk to help revive her career at the time of her disappearance. Within the glamorous but sordid inner sanctums of the Broadway elite, the team confronts the ruthless power brokers who control both the stars and the stages where they appear.

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 Linda Fairstein's most chilling adventure yet.

Death Dance

Linda Fairstein is a good author. The abridged version of this book was poorly done. The story skipped too many details and then referred to those details later. Made the story telling weak.

Good book, but abridged version NOT recommended

It's a very enjoyable book, so it's worth hearing the whole thing, rather than an abridged version. Also, the reading in this version is a bit flat.
