Description


Contemporary Detective in a Scandal of Dance, Death, and Sex
Here are two mystery novelettes, updated versions of the old-fashioned cozies that Agatha Christie did so well. They present a small cast of characters in a relatively closed environment, and are based on intertwined themes of ballroom dance, polyamory, and alternative spirituality. Our protagonists are Richard Wilson, formerly head of the detective section of the Savannah police force, and his inamorata (later wife) Anna.
Each book contains clues leading to the solution of the mystery. The reader is challenged to find those clues and to unravel the tangled web.
Termination Tango is a prequel to a series of detective stories. To achieve the sexual responses necessary to an accurate portrayal of the emotions in the dance of life called Argentine tango, the tangueros rehearse nude. Their instructor considers an authentic portrayal of lust, desire, and despair impossible without the nude rehearsals. Death enters the studio when a bullet through the window fells a rehearsing dancer and the instructor.
Wicked Waltz is set in St. Ives, Cornwall, a beautiful, quiet holiday town that hadn't had a murder in more than ten years. The dance theme is central to a plot that moves at a fast pace through multiple deaths which leave the Cornish police and the CID puzzled. Richard suspects a connecting factor between the deaths in the mini-crime wave.
All lovers of a good mystery and all dancers will enjoy these escapes into another world--the world of dance--here inhabited by healthy polyamorous young adults.
Look for the next books in the series, Reprehensible Rumba and Cattywampus Contra.
