A fast-paced thriller set in Lancashire, The Corpse that Danced introduces private investigator and ex-police officer Jordan Lewis and her criminologist side-kick and long-time friend Jarvis Moon.
When Carol Johnson dies of an alleged overdose, her parents ask Jordan Lewis to review the case. At the same time another girl, identity unknown, is murdered, and a woman is kidnapped. When it rapidly becomes clear that Carol did not take her own life, Jordan begins to suspect that all these cases are in some way linked: not just to one another, but to an episode in her own past.
Jordan’s investigative skills are put to the ultimate test in a race against time to hunt down a notorious and ruthless killer and save yet another victim.
