From the Inside Flap
She was hiding from the future.
Now she?ll do anything to live until tomorrow.
Two years after the accidental death of her husband and son, Sara Martin is still wearing her wedding band, using it as a shield against a future without love. Then a persistent prank caller shatters her fragile peace of mind and brings detective Eric D?Angelo into her life. Eric reminds her of the passion she never thought she?d feel again?and the idea of surrendering to it scares her. But Sara will soon discover that she never knew the meaning of the word fear . . . until now.
Even for a seasoned detective like Eric D?Angelo, the rash of murders haunting the city of Austin seems unbelievably grisly. Still, he?s worked enough of these cases to know that eventually, even a killer as meticulous as the Sinatra killer make a mistake. Then Sara becomes the madman?s target. Between fighting off the ghosts in her past and the monster in her present, Eric is forced to wonder if their hopes of a future together will ever see the light of day. . . .

Convinced by well-meaning friends to find out if there was anything she could do, she met police detective Eric D'Angelo. A divorcee, he wasn't looking for a relationship but the chemistry between the two was instantaneous. He advised Sara on her options at the present time but he was knee-deep in a rash of unexplained murders and had to set his feelings aside. It wasn't long before he realized something would happen if he didn't keep an eye on this special woman.
DANCING IN THE DARK is about a serial killer on the loose. What he does is gruesome. If this bothers you, don't read the book. If you don't mind reading a thriller with some bite try this contemporary suspense.
You, the reader, are given enough clues and Ms. Davis makes you feel like a sleuth. Secondary characters are also interesting. And, lastly, she manages to interject a strong romance amongst all the suspicions and she does a good job. It is a fast read.
To make things worse, there's a killer on the loose, and Detective D'Angelo has been assigned to the case. Not only are the murders as grizzly as they come, but they're getting closer and closer to home, and to Sara. Is she the target of a madman? And can she trust her life, and her heart, to Eric?
If you're looking for a fast read, with enthralling, well developed characters, look no further than DANCING IN THE DARK. The suspense thread is wonderfully woven into the story, and it kept me guessing right until the very end. Every time I thought I had the killer figured out, Ms. Davis would expertly throw in another plot twist or minor detail to throw me off track.
The chemistry between Sara and Eric leaps off the pages. They're fantastic together, in part due to wonderful dialogue and great descriptions by Ms. Davis. The romance is believable and realistic, as is their fear and the thread of suspense that flows through that romance. Secondary characters are depth to the plot, and help relieve the tension with the humor and support they offer.
Dee Davis has written a real winner in DANCING IN THE DARK. Just a word of caution: some of the descriptions of the murders are very gory, so if you're easily disturbed by such scenes, you might want to skip this one.
Surprising both Eric and Sara, they feel an immediate attraction to one another as neither has found any recent interest in the opposite sex until now. However, the Sinatra case intersects with Sara as the killer, over the phone, begins describing the grisly scenes to her in some sort of macho boasting manner. If he did not love her, Eric would wonder if Sara was helping the murderer, but because he does he concludes that she is the ultimate target, but who is this Sinatra fan?
Though serial killer romance tales have been in over abundance of late, this novel is a refreshing entry due to the Sinatra angle. The story line is loaded with action that turns quite frenzied when Eric realizes that his beloved is in danger. The lead couple is a charming pair and his partner and her friend add depth to the stars. Dee Davis furbishes a strong police procedural romance and readers will enjoy DANCING IN THE DARK (but keep the lights on - it's hard to read in the dark).
