Product Description

Review

Linda Fairstein's DEATH DANCE is her most powerful and affecting novel yet. Fairstein really knows what she's writing about, and that includes New York's theatrical world.' James Patterson ('Fairstein was a prosecutor and it shows in the convincing detail of investigations an interrogations. She's excellent at portraying the relationships between Alex and the cops with whom she works.')

THE TIMES ('Intelligent, authentic and high on suspense.')

I'd have to agree with some of the negative comments from other readers, this was not Fairstein at her best. The plot is weak and does focus on the ballet world which is not something that can hold a plot!! It rambles on and I nearly gave up at one point, then it ended and I wished I had given up.

She can do sooo much better than this - she's proved it before!

The novel starts with two girls having been drugged and than sexually assaulted, which acts as a parrallel plot line. The main crux of the story is about a prima ballerina goes missing and is later found dead, and the subsequent investigation that takes place.

This is the first Linda Fairstein novel I have read, although apparently it is the eighth book to feature the character Alexandra Cooper or 'Coop'. It's Ok, easy to read and would pass a few hours on the beach, but don't expect something that will set the world on fire!

This has to be the worst crime novel that I've ever read. The plot was rambling,the characters laughable and the text awful.

You'd be better off checking out Ruth Rendell or Patricia Cornwell instead...

Death Dance is a rubbish title, isn't it? Corny. Melodramatic. Just rubbish. The content is equally dire. A Death Dance with two left feet. And a book I persevered with only to wind up wondering why I bothered.

The plot is all over the place. The characters are a complete yawn. It's hard to find anything good to say about it. Infact, there is nothing good to say about it.

I was a third of the way in before I realised that this was the second novel I'd read by this author and featured characters I should have already been familiar with but, clearly, had found forgettable. Not much of a recommendation, is it?

Patricia Cornwell is quoted within - praising Linda Fairstein as author extraordinaire. Given Cornwell's habit for writing turgid yarns, it can hardly be considered a compliment.

Although the book contained interesting information about the NY theatre scene, the reason for Alex's involvement in the investigation of the central crime, her actual involvement in the investigation of the central crime, the resolution of the central crime and the relationship between Alex and Mike are totally unrealistic.

Another good read from Linda Fairstein. Not only is the story backed by interesting facts about the Met, other NYC landmarks and the New York theatre business, but the relationship between Alex Cooper, Mercer and Mike Chapman is great. A good read from begining to end, although I would like to have read more about Alex's personal ballet dancing history in this book.
