DANCING IN THE DARK by Stuart M. Kaminsky


Email this review


Luna Martin wants Fred Astaire to teach her to dance. Plus, Luna Martin wants Fred Astaire. Fred Astaire doesn't want Luna Martin, so he hires Toby Peters, shamus to the stars, to stand in for him. It's not such an easy job, since Toby can't get himself to hear the beat, and since Luna's boyfriend is Arthur Forbes, n‚ Fingers Intaglia; but it's made easier when Luna keels over dead on her way in to her third lesson. Unfortunately, Luna's death saddles Toby with a second client--Arthur Forbes--who threatens to disable Toby if he doesn't get swift, efficient vengeance for Luna. Toby would probably be safer at Guadalcanal. Toby's 19th case (Tomorrow Is Another Day, 1995) is bound to be lapped up by nostalgia buffs hungry for glimpses of Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, and Cornel Wilde. The uninitiate will scratch their heads in bemusement.
