With all the wit and high-stakes suspense of his Lovejoy series, Jonathan Gash's debut Dr. Clare Burtonall mystery, Different Women Dancing, was published to rave reviews. A "smashing new crime novel," enthused The New York Times Book Review. In a dramatic departure from the irascible Lovejoy, Gash casts smart and sensuous female cardiologist Dr. Clare Burtonall in the lead, and a high-priced male prostitute, Bonn, as her sensitive and charismatic sidekick. The result is incendiary. Prey Dancing finds Clare working the late shift in the city hospital's Infectious Disease Unit, where a young woman, Marie, dying of AIDS, breathes her last with a one-word message to be delivered to her boyfriend: "Forgive." Ironically, Clare's search for the man makes her the target of his sworn vengeance for Marie's death, drawing her into the unfamiliar terrain of the city's dark underworld. Once again Bonn, with the street savvy of a rented Romeo, provides Clare with his unique kind of insight and intimacy to help save them both from a brutal fate.
