Publisher's Summary

Imagine if you were investigating crime in a city both deadly and breathtaking. Mexican drug cartels battle for control, and politicians are bought with blood money.
Your partner once vowed to destroy you. Your new lieutenant is a drunk. Your lover might leave Acapulco.
And then the restaurant you just left blows up.
Terrified by her nightmares of the restaurant fire and shaken by norteamericano hotel manager Kurt Rucker's possible move, Emilia Cruz must catch a violent firebomber and find a missing girl before the iconic beach city is destroyed.
Neither investigation is easy, because the influence and impact of Mexico's drug war is everywhere, just like the salt breeze coming off the ocean. Emilia's police work is soon hijacked by savage political rivalries, a corrupt vice cop, and a woman in prison who knows more than she'll say.
As Acapulco screams for an end to the flames, the arsonist evades Emilia's sting operation. Meanwhile, the missing girl's trail leads to Acapulco's famous lucha libre fighters.
Inside the coliseum, the heat of the investigation ignites into an inferno. If Emilia's only chance to survive is to dance with the devil, will she take it?
Would you?

Another winner from Carmen Amato!

Like Cliff Diver (first novel in the Emilia Cruz series) Hat Dance is a well written mystery with vivid characters, lots of action, intense suspense, and some major plot twists. This modern detective story is set in Acapulco, Mexico. The protagonist is junior detective Emilia Cruz who is the first female detective in Acapulco. Narration by Johanna Parker is outstanding. I enjoyed and I highly recommend this suspense mystery series.!
