Synopsis: When she's invited to teach at the elegant Easton Arts Retreat's 50th anniversary celebration, Lindy Haggerty happily accepts. After all, this prestigious institution is set in bucolic upstate New York in a gigantic mansion and is practically synonymous with summer dance. But instead of guiding her talented and quirky dancers to new heights, Lindy finds herself mired in betrayal, twisted desires-and a brutal death. The body of Larry Cleveland, a rebellious scholarship student who had few friends and a lot of rough edges, is found at the bottom of a nearby cliff. The evidence points to a simple accident. But the local sheriff, who has an ax to grind, wants to use the mishap to blacken the reputation of the Retreat and open the door to big-city developers. It's up to Lindy to find out what's really going on and who would have wanted Larry dead. With a ruthless killer closing in, Lindy takes the first position in the art of detecting: do whatever it takes to stay alive.

From Publishers Weekly: In her third outing (after Backstage Murder and High Seas Murder), Lindy Graham-Haggerty again frets her way through a complex, if plodding, mystery set in the fascinating world of professional dance. (A dust jacket depicting an amusement park and fireworks is somewhat misleading, but it's certainly striking.) Rehearsal director (part teacher, part mother hen) for the Jeremy Ash modern dance company, Lindy accompanies the troupe to the Easton Arts Retreat, a prestigious summer academy for young artists in upstate New York that's celebrating its 50th anniversary with a gala performance by one of its best-known alumni. As a teenager, Ash was a scholarship student at the school, and his friendship with its patron, the elegant Marguerite Easton, has endured. The arriving troupe is met with tragedy: a student has just fallen to his death, amid ugly rumors about his unsavory sexual relationships. Trouble accelerates. The school's artistic director, accused of pederasty and murder by the homophobic local sheriff, nearly dies from an apparent suicide attempt. A destructive landslide may be an act of sabotage by real estate developers who want control of the family land. Lindy doesn't so much solve the multifaceted mystery as observe the swirl of events and find herself on hand at the climactic moment when the clues hit the fan. Readers who love dance will be enchanted with the authentic behind-the-scene details; those who do not may prefer their cozies with a crisper pace.
