MURDER IN SECOND POSITION. NOW AVAILABLE!
Ballerina Leah Siderova belongs onstage. Not in an interrogation room at Manhattan’s Twentieth Precinct. And yet, for the second time in less than a year, that’s where she has a starring role. It wasn’t her fault someone killed the autocratic new director of the American Ballet Company. And it wasn’t her job to find the killer.
Leah is determined to stay as far away as possible from the murder investigation. After all, if she were going to kill someone, it would have been the woman who’s been relentlessly trolling her on social media. And that’s where things get complicated. Because when dancers say “ballet can be murder” they don’t mean it literally.
Most of the time.
Robbins deploys her tartly witty prose to offer a delicious, well-observed sendup of the ballet world…Readers will root for Leah as she sleuths her way through the troupe’s comic excesses. A graceful mystery that pirouettes around a cast of entertaining narcissists.
Lori Robbins creates a riveting murder mystery especially recommended for those familiar with the complex world of ballet and its many political and personal challenges. The politics of the dance world…are realistically presented, adding tension to unfolding events as Leah investigates matters that quickly move beyond dance competition circles.
