The other characters are colorful, but one-dimensional. Nick Sayler is portrayed as someone who's had a rough, rough background but lives like James Bond now . . . not believable enough for me to buy into the rest of the story.
It starts with Nick Sayler, a private detective, being called by a young intern at Bellevue Hospital. His business card has been found in the pocket of a young woman who has been dropped off at the Emergency Entrance. She had been found beaten and left to die in an alley in Manhattan. The card is the only clue to her identity as her wallet and all other documents are missing. The hospital policy is that, because of the lack of identification, the woman will be designated a "Jane Doe" and admitted to the psychiatric ward at the hospital. The doctor, using the only clue he has, has called Sayler and asked him to take her out of the building so that she won't be lost in the routine of the hospital. This is the beginning of a search for her identity and for the person or persons who tried to kill her.
As Sayler tries to find out who the woman is he learns that she is the third "dancer" who has been attacked in this way in the past few months. She is lucky as the taxi driver who found her on the street and dropped her at the hospital saved her life. Sayler figures out that she is a dancer by her physical characteristics, posture and bearing. There is also something very frail about her, and she is a woman men want to protect. Everyone she meets is impressed with how nice she is, and Sayler finds himself falling in love with her. This is not good for him as the death of the great love of his life ten years earlier has left him wounded and carrying a lot of emotions around with him.Read more ›
