Summary, etc.:
"With their long necks and matching buns and pink tights, Dara and Marie Durant have been dancers since they can remember. Growing up, they were homeschooled and trained by their glamorous mother, founder of the Durant School of Dance. After their parents' death in a tragic car accident nearly a dozen years ago, the sisters began running the school together, along with Charlie, Dara's husband and once their mother's prized student. Marie, warm and soft, teaches the younger students; Dara, with her precision, trains the older ones; and Charlie, sidelined from dancing after years of injuries, rules over the back office. Circling around one another, the three have perfected a dance, six days a week, that keeps the studio thriving. But when a suspicious accident occurs, just at the onset of the school's annual performance of The Nutcracker--a season of competition, anxiety, and exhilaration--an interloper arrives and threatens the sisters' delicate balance"--Back cover.

    Abbott brings another disturbing and sexualized thriller for listeners to devour. Dara and Marie Durant have been ballerinas practically since birth, having been raised by their dancer mother, who ran the Durant School of Dance. After losing their parents in a tragic accident, Dara and Marie now run the school themselves, along with childhood friend and Dara's husband, Charlie. Following a fire, a hired contractor becomes more involved with the Durants than necessary. Twisted into the competitive culture of dance is the complexity of family and greed. Campbell expertly personifies the entangled relationships with her elegant and confident tone. She weaves depth into the characters while creating distinct voices: Marie is the submissive, soft-spoken sister; Dara, the fierier and more confident of the two; Charlie is the voice of reason; and finally, Derek is the intrusive, greedy interloper. Leading listeners to the eye-opening ending, Campbell and Abbott deliver a compelling thriller. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
