KIRKUS REVIEW

What's a nice lady like moving (as in relocation) coordinator Bonnie Indermill, engaged and everything to mover Sam Finkelstein, doing with a scam-meister like ""Fast Eddie"" Fong? That's what she keeps asking herself after she overcomes her reservations about Eddie's checkered past enough to sign on for two weeks' temp work at his new dance club, The Dancing Fool. And after the death of TV star Brad Gannett, who'd smilingly endorsed the club only a few weeks before his shooting, the police are asking the same thing. Game Bonnie allows herself to be pressed into service as an undercover agent for NYPD's Captain John Lee, but although her adventures as ""the world's worst spy"" will provoke some smiles, she doesn't distinguish herself in this muffled tale of dancing, drugs, die-hard fans, and the lower strata of showbiz. Even Berry's most ardent fans--and there are bound to be many--will miss the sparkle of The Death of a Difficult Woman (1994).
