A TIGHTLY-PLOTTED CRIME THRILLER WITH GREAT CHARACTERS

MURDER IN THE BALLET LEADS DETECTIVE MARKHAM ON QUITE A DANCE

George Baranov, the ballet's choreographer, is found in the theatre's basement with a knife in his back.

He was known for his daring twists on famous productions . . . and for his twisted loved life.

Detective Markham and his team have their work cut out when Baranov's closest friend also brutally murdered.

Under pressure from the boss to wrap up the case under the mad fan theory, Markham has to play both sides.

As Markham closes in on the murderer, the body count keeps rising. The Nutcracker is set to go ahead with plenty of suspects off and onstage.

Blackmail, thwarted love, sexual intrigue and professional rivalries add up to a potent cocktail in Markham's most perplexing mystery to date.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON WITH A SERIAL KILLER WAITING IN THE WINGS

The Detectives

DI GILBERT ('GIL') MARKHAM
DI Markham is a startlingly talented detective rising through the ranks of Bromgrove CID. He is distant and austere - the product of a profoundly difficult childhood - but has a natural magnetism which inspires loyalty. He clashes with his slippery boss, DCI Sidney, who prioritises the force's public image.

DS GEORGE ('NOAKESY') NOAKES
DS Noakes is a slobbish, uncouth and outspoken Yorkshireman, an object of despair to his superiors. He is, however, also a man of hidden depths, with a sensitive streak and a secret flair for ballroom dancing. Markham sees through his philistinism and they form an unstoppable partnership.
