Erin has begun to make her mark as an outstanding jewelry designer, and Darcy has embarked on a promising career as a "no-frills" decorator.
As a lark, the two women have agreed to help another friend with her research for a television documentary on the kinds of people who place and answer personal ads, and on their experiences. At first, it seems like innocent fun.
Then one day, Erin disappears. Soon after, her body is found on an abandoned Manhattan pier--on one foot is her own shoe; on the other, a high-heeled dancing slipper. It soon becomes apparent that Erin is not the first victim of this "dancing shoe murderer," as other seemingly unrelated missing person reports are connected to her death through startling communiques from the killer.
Darcy had persuaded the reluctant Erin to participate in the research for the documentary. Now, guilt-ridden over her friend's death, she sets out to meet the men Erin had dated, hoping to find her killer.
What Darcy does not realize, what she cannot know until it is too late, is that she has been targeted as the killer's next victim.« less
