Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Linda Fairstein takes listeners behind the scenes of New York City's theater world - from Lincoln Center to the lights of Broadway - in a riveting 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.

HORRIFIC narration

If you want to listen to Barbara Rosenblat suck cough drops and swallow her saliva and gasp for breath during every pause; by all means feel free to waste a credit on this book.

It was so annoying that I stopped listening after 10 minutes.

While I love Linda Fairstein, and ordered her entire "Alex Cooper" series, the reader makes it impossible to listen to them.

Sorry to have wasted my $$$ and credits.

- Michael "Over the road truck driver and an avid fan of audiobooks."

A good story.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

If I could, I would of put emphasis on the opening crimes and put the Ballet behind the scenes.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Barbara is usually fine sometimes better, But this was the worst one.

Could you see Death Dance being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
