New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein takes readers 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 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 deadly ones.

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.

    James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Imagine John Grisham at his best collaborating with Patricia Cornwell at her best…and then you’re close to imagining how good this book is.” 

    Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Fairstein doesn’t miss a beat in Death Dance. The plot is as intricate and fluid as a ballet, and she is in perfect step with her characters…Between Alex and Mike, count on sparks flying as fast as the dialogue.” 

    Sandra Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “This whodunit manages to pirouette to a satisfying climax just as the curtain drops. Fairstein fans will undoubtedly demand an encore.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This thriller is chock-full of authentic detail, showcasing Fairstein’s extensive knowledge of legal and forensic issues and the New York arts and theater scene. Her measured prose has enough plot twists to engage any reader, and her well-rounded characters add depth and believability. Fun, smart, and creepy, with a heroine to match Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta at the top of her game, Fairsteins latest is a real winner. Highly recommended.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sarah Pottenger | 2/19/2014

    " Kind of bleak--everyone was a sleaze. But it was a good mystery, with a good final clash, and the relationships between the main characters were interesting. "

    " I have read several Fairstein's Alexandra Cooper novels and while I have enjoyed many, I find this one to be a little on the flat side. Not enough of a thrill ride this time around to keep my interest but this will not deter me from reading more. I have also listened to a couple more in a row than I expected to (because of circumstances) and I think I just need a break from the Cooper novels. I am currently in the middle of "Killer Heat" and am enjoying that one much more! "

    " Pretty darned good! "

    " "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." "Cooper, Chapman, and Wallace go underground and backstage at the Met, explore Berk's unusual apartment on top of the Belasco Theatre with its rumored ghostly resident, and then discover bizarre circumstances at City Center, which has a peculiar history not one of them knew about until now." "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. They meet Joe's niece Mona Berk, who is mounting a vicious campaign to extract her share of the family fortune, and stunning starlet Lucy DeVore, whose beauty may be her fatal undoing. Chet Dobbis is the artistic director of the Metropolitan Opera, and therefore privy to the most scandalous exploits among its famous inhabitants. He also knows every inch of the labyrinthine building into which the ballerina disappeared." "
