Initially disinterested in looking into the very public death of a famous ballroom dancer, P.I. Quinn O'Casey gets drawn in by a number of factors. The dead woman was his brother's lover, and there's a possible link to several other murders, including one he helped solve. There's also his powerful attraction to Shannon Mackay, the manager of the studio where the deceased occasionally taught.

Suspicious of Shannon at first, Quinn comes to care deeply for her and is determined to protect her— even if she's equally determined not to let him get too close.

DEAD ON THE DANCE FLOOR is an absorbing, strongly plotted story set against a colorful and unusual backdrop. Graham masterfully pulls the reader in, right along with her hero. Be prepared to stay up very late! (Mar., 352 pp., $24.95)
