Dead On Her Feet




Dead on Her Feet
by Lisa Fernow

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

What happens when a dancer violates the tango code?

Tango instructor and chronic rule-breaker Antonia “Ant” Blakeley has no respect for authority. So when a much-hated member of the Atlanta tango community is stabbed in the middle of the dance floor, leaving her troubled nephew Christian first on the list of suspects, the last thing she wants to do is use her tango expertise to help the police work out how someone could have struck the fatal blow, unseen. As someone who has experienced police incompetence first hand Antonia doesn’t trust them to find the real killer. So she lies to give Christian an alibi, and the coverup begins.



Unfortunately for Ant, former marine Detective Sam Morrow is on the case and he will do whatever it takes to solve the crime. He’s not about to let Antonia hijack his case. As both Ant and Sam investigate (or in Ant’s case, interfere), the two sleuths are about to find out the more antagonistic meaning of “it takes two to tango.”

Excerpt

“Tango can be about many things—seduction, longing, nostalgia, intimacy, tenderness— you get the picture. Whatever the music and the moment inspires. This song isn’t one we normally dance to but I happen to think it’s a beautiful piece, especially if you understand the words. It’s called ‘Uno.’ One.” Uno, oh yeah, she thought.

“He gave away his heart to a woman who betrayed him and now he can’t love the way he used to. That’s life and death stuff.” She was pleased to see Christian nodding, solemnly. “For this exercise I want you to move with whatever emotion inspires you. No partners. Walk around the room in the line of dance, counterclockwise, everyone, remember? Don’t worry about steps, the idea is to get used to feeling the music and transmitting it through your bodies.”

Antonia started the track, savoring the instrumental opening. When Sosa finally started to sing the yearning in his voice punctured her heart as it never failed to do. The class shuffled around the room, some self-consciously, others with more abandon. One of the Emory students seemed to be channeling Martha Graham, in a good way.

Something out of the corner of her eye caught her attention: a stranger, not that much taller than she was, standing in the doorway. His military bearing, neatly trimmed mustache, and close-cropped sandy hair would have conveyed unyielding strength if it hadn’t been for the fact that his eyes were pale blue and his nose had been broken at least once. He would have been just her type if she were interested in a relationship.

Ten year old Ivee falls asleep one night to awaken to a strange new world; a world without Adults. Anyone twenty one years old or older had vanished, including her parents.

So Ivee discovered she was responsible not only for her own survival, but that of her sister Celia.

Seven years later, Seventeen year old Ivee is happy with her life; feeling safe behind the gates of the Highlander’s camp in the northern division of Athol. Things were good until her sister is kidnapped by another faction the Downenders. Ivee is given a map and a message; she has a week to make her way to the southern end of the city, to save her sister.

Setting out on her journey, Ivee discovers how different the world has truly become outside the gates of her home——Phantom Airships, Manbots and Ghostly Wolves—are just a few of the surprises she encounters during her quest. She is not alone, one of her campmates joins her mission; she also meets a handsome and mysterious boy, called the Savior. He joins their quest, only saying he has unfinished business with the Downies.
