Well-written for the most part, though not the most original. Dance With The Devil was rather interesting but not memorable, and the characters were kind of boring.

Another compact little gothic by Dean Koontz, writing as Deanna Dwyer.

Katherine Sellers sets out to her first job as assistant to Lydia Roxburgh Boland, one of the dozen wealthiest women in the country.

Deanna Dwyer, Dance with the Devil (Prestige, 1972)
[originally posted 17Sep2001]

I always figured gothic romance novels were written by terminally horny college students with a passing interest in the occult and a strong desire to make money by any means necessary.

I rather liked it but I saddened to realize that the book is written under dean koontz pen name from earlier in his career. I've read him before but this was really different from his later books. As I was reading this I was actually taking a break from ...more

I read this book because Dean Koontz was co-author--not sure what year it was published but I would guess 30+++ years ago. It was an easy read and a bit of a pleasant surprise as to what passed for horror back then. Simple plot, simple characters, simple twist at the end. A pleasant but inane read.
