Danse Macabre

Private investigators Alexandra Neve and Ashford Egan are hired to succeed where the police have failed, to safely return home a missing ballerina. With no lead to pursue and no idea who could be behind the young woman’s kidnapping, they soon find themselves at a loss as to what to do.

To make matters worse, the heart of England seems to be caught in the middle of a little Ice Age. With snow endlessly falling and Tube lines either too cramped up to use or out of service, it is a pain to do any legwork in the huge metropolis.

Oh, and because trouble never comes alone, there may also be a serial killer on the loose in the streets of East London...


My two-bits:

This is the second book I have read in the series. I started with book 2 which I liked. And this book is just as good.

The story takes place during the holiday winter season which fits for cozy reading this time of year.

The friendship relationship between the detective duo of Neve and Egan is the heart of this series that keeps me interested in shadowing their investigations. Their banter and funny shared moments are entertaining.

I liked that this story revealed some of Egan's history especially in regards to his blindness which contributed to his character background.

This kidnapping mystery has an element of creepiness with the clues found that kept me engaged and wanting to find out why and most of all who?

About the author:

Cristelle Comby was born and raised in the French-speaking area of Switzerland, in Greater Geneva, where she still resides.

Thanks to her insatiable thirst for American and British action films and television dramas, her English is fluent.

She attributes to her origins her ever-peaceful nature and her undying love for chocolate. She has a passion for art, which also includes an interest in drawing and acting.

Danse Macabre is her third new-adult novel, and she’s hard at work on the next titles in the Neve & Egan series.

  3. What first interested me was the cover. It is indeed macabre for a ballerina to have blood spatters on her toe shoes. I am intrigued and want to find out what happened.
