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.

Quotes & Awards

  • Death Dance is her most powerful and affecting novel yet. Fairstein really knows what she's writing about.”

    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.”

    " Do assistant District Attorneys really lead such dangerous existences that they're forced to fight for their lives several times a year? I generally enjoy these books, but I could do without the utterly ridiculous climaxes they tend to have. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/8/2014

    " Sometimes her books are hard to get through and this was one of those. If you skip this one in the series, I think it will be ok, nothing of real importance came from it, and the mystery was just ok. Of course all the open cases are closed in one night, just not my favorite in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Voracious_reader | 1/7/2014

    " Great NY stage history and NY architectural details, but short on much of anything else. It started well, but didn't maintain the energy with which it began and I found myself more interested in the side stories than the main events. "

    " If you want to read of the history of some of the New York Theatres and details of food eaten by the characters then this book is for you. If you want a suspense filled thriller then don't bother. "
