Format: Mass Market Paperback
This has become one of my favourite Dee Davis books. Two years ago Sara Martin lost both her husband and son in a tragic car accident. Still not over their deaths, she is plagued by a prank caller harrassing her in the small hours of the night.
Elsewhere in the city there is a serial killer preying on prostitutes and leaving his signature Frank Sinatra songs playing. Detective Eric D'Angelo is assigned to the case and finds himself sickened by the violence of the crimes.
When Sara and Eric meet up it is a case of unavoidable attraction, like two magnets they are drawn together, which puts Sara in the spotlight with the serial killer.
This is a well crafted romantic suspence and fans of her previous works will not be disappointed.

two years after the accidental death of her husband and son, sara martin is still wearing her wedding band,using it as sheild against any future love.
then a persistant prank caller shatters her fragile peace of mind and brings into it detective eric d'angelo. he brings passion into her life again.
even for a seasoned detective like d'angelo, the rash of murders haunting the city of austin seems unbelievably grisly.
he's confident that the sinatra killer will make a mistake and will be caught.then sara becomes the madmans next target.
this is a well written book by an author i had never heard of is full of suspense that just sizzles on every page and leaves you wanting more.this is what romantic suspense should be like.
highly reccommended

Thrilling and Romantic 28 July 2004
By Lacey Savage - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sara Martin has been through a lot. Two years ago, her husband and son were both killed in a car accident, and Sara's still mourning their loss. Her nights are troubled by disturbing dreams and crank calls, the latter of which sends her to detective Eric D'Angelo for help. His sexy looks and protective demeanor penetrate Sarah's defenses, but is she ready to loose her heart again?

To make things worse, there's a killer on the loose, and Detective D'Angelo has been assigned to the case. Not only are the murders as grizzly as they come, but they're getting closer and closer to home, and to Sara. Is she the target of a madman? And can she trust her life, and her heart, to Eric?

If you're looking for a fast read, with enthralling, well developed characters, look no further than DANCING IN THE DARK. The suspense thread is wonderfully woven into the story, and it kept me guessing right until the very end. Every time I thought I had the killer figured out, Ms. Davis would expertly throw in another plot twist or minor detail to throw me off track.

The chemistry between Sara and Eric leaps off the pages. They're fantastic together, in part due to wonderful dialogue and great descriptions by Ms. Davis. The romance is believable and realistic, as is their fear and the thread of suspense that flows through that romance. Secondary characters are depth to the plot, and help relieve the tension with the humor and support they offer.

Dee Davis has written a real winner in DANCING IN THE DARK. Just a word of caution: some of the descriptions of the murders are very gory, so if you're easily disturbed by such scenes, you might want to skip this one.

Awesome Book... 4 Aug. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I didn't think I'd find a Dee Davis book better then After Twilight but Dancing In The Dark is going to be really hard to beat. I can usually figure out the killer/mystery in books pretty quickly but I didn't have a clue in this book. Everybody appears to be a suspect so it really drew me in & I honestly didn't have a clue until right before the cops figured it out. I will admit that a time or 2 it seemed a little to graphic but that was the story line & it played in great. The romance & people in this book are just awesome. I highly recommend this book.

A Fast Thrilling Read!!! 22 Sept. 2003
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a fast read with great characters and plot! There are so many twists and turns that you are kept guess as to who the "Sinatra Killer" is. Women are being killed and at the scene of the crime is a CD player playing Sinatra songs. No clues are being left behind and the police are puzzeled as to who the killer is and why he's killing.
Sara has been receiving crank calls and her friend and co-worker suggest that she speak with her husband who just so happens to be a police detective. Sara goes to talk to Bess's husband but talks to his partner instead. Detective Eric D'Angelo. The attraction is immediate and for the first time Sara is willing to start letting go of the past and look toward the future. But at the same time that Eric and Sara start falling for each other, Eric finds out that there is a connection between the "Sinatra Killer" and Sara. Could she be his next victim?
As stated previously this was a fast paced read and the romance between Eric and Sara is great! You can really feel the chemistry beetween these two people. You can also feel the fear that is presented due to the killer. Do yourself a favor and pick up this book. Ms. Davis is an author that you must add to you MUST READ list!

Best of the best! 23 Aug. 2003
By Detra Fitch - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The perp was dubbed the Sinatra Killer. He object [physically harmed] his victims, stabbed them, took a trophy, and left them to bleed out. At each crime scene a boom box was left with Frank Sinatra singing romantic songs to a corpse.
Sara Martin had no idea her silent phone caller was the perp. Her friends talked her into going to the police to ask for advice. It was there that Sara met [good looking] Detective Eric D'Angelo. The attraction was instantaneous, but Sara was not yet ready for a relationship. Eric knew Sara would be special to someone, someday. But he shocked himself when he heard himself ask her out. They would take it slow.
Eric and his partner were on the Sinatra case. As the bodies piled up, connections from the killer to Sara began forming. Eric vowed to protect Sara with his life!
***** OMG! This story is so enthralling that I read it within six hours, never once putting it down for anything! Some characters from previous books were thrown in, (casual third party references) and that made the characters even more real to me - the reader.
The story is so good that it deserves a special word to describe it. I decided on "Unputdownable!" I have no doubt you will agree. Highly recommended! *****

satisfying and thrilling 6 Sept. 2003
By Rose Chastain - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Courtesy of A Romance Review
In Austin, Texas, two prostitutes are murdered over the last eighteen months, left with missing body parts. The first with missing ears, the second with a missing tongue. Tonight, another body is found in a trash bin with missing fingers. Detectives Eric D'Angelo, and Tony Haskins are on the case and soon discover the three cases are related to the Sinatra Killer,who always plays a song of Frank Sinatra's on a boom box during his kill.
On the other hand, Sara Martin has been awakened by midnight "silence" phone calls for a while. At the urging of her best friend, Bess Haskins, wife of Tony Haskins, she goes to see Tony at the station and to see if he can help. Who she meets is Eric instead of Tony. Eric is smitten with Sara at first sight and the attraction seems to be mutual for both parties. Eric finds himself prolonging the meeting with Sara and makes excuses to see her again.
Sara is a free-lance photographer at a magazine. Her husband and son were killed in a car accident over two years ago and she's refused to date anyone since then. Her friends have tried hard to set her up with nice guys but she was never interested until the accidental meeting with Eric.
As the relationship between Eric and Sara starts to grow, the Sinatra case turns a new page. The last victim, Lydia Wallace, was the young woman with whom Sara has been working on an article. Then, another victim is found dead in her home. This time, a social worker, not a prostitute and the killer takes her hair. Then, Sara gets another midnight "silent" call but this time, there is music in the background, the Sinatra music ......
Dancing in the Dark is a well-plotted and well-balanced tale of romance and suspense. At the beginning, the romance and the suspense parts of the story seems to go separate routes, but with some twists and turns created by Ms. Davis, they blend into one nicely and logically. The hero and heroine are perfect for each other, and their romance is both sweet and passionate. However, finding the Sinatra killer is quite a challenge, with little tips and bits provided in the tale. Readers will surely find Dancing in the Dark most satisfying and thrilling from start till end.
