Private investigators Alexandra Neve and Ashford Egan are hired to succeed where the police have failed, to safely return home a missing ballerina. With no lead to pursue and no idea who could be behind the young woman’s kidnapping, they soon find themselves at a loss as to what to do.

To make matters worse, the heart of England seems to be caught in the middle of a little

What does a singer, dancer, and pianist have in common? Death. A gruesome death that seems to baffle the New Scotland Yard police force.

Once again, Neve and Egan are back in action with what appears to be a not-a-runaway investigation. When the police give Mrs. Doughton the brush off, she hires Alexandra and Ashford to find her missing daughter, an up and coming ballet dancer and ballet teacher. It's winter time and their mystery soon turns into something even more sinister when they find the p

From the outset, I have to tell you that of the three novels released thus far in the Neve & Egan Cases, Danse Macabre is my favorite. The characters have gelled together as a team and have each come into their own as individuals as they've faced their own demons. The case they find themselves on this time is also much deeper, darker, and more complex.

And we all know I like deep, dark, and complex.

Alexandra Neve (Lexa to her friends) and Ashford Egan (who has few friends) are coming to the c

Last weekend I finished reading Danse Macabre, the third novel in the Neve & Egan crime novels series. The author, Cristelle Comby is on a blog tour and I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. I’ve also read Russian Dolls and Ruby Heart, the previous books in the series, and reviewed the latter in December 2013. I enjoyed the previous novels’ upbeat, humorous approach to crime fiction so when I started the latest book I knew what to expect and was looking forward to ...more

I was provided with a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Simply wow! It's been a pretty long time since I've managed to get my hands on a completely clean and decent heart-pounding thriller and mystery such as this! I loved it from end to end, and I have to laud the author for not having resorted to the stereo-typed elements of steamy romance, substance abuse or violence in her scenes. This was the first book I read in the Neva and Egan series, and I was in for a tremend

This is a fairly good mystery detective novel. Private investigators Alexandra Neve and Ashford Egan are entangled in a series of crimes involving abduction and ritual killing of budding female music stars. They manage to score leads where the police cannot, but the police in charge nevertheless, would prefer they butt out of the investigation. This does not settle well with either PI, so they stay in and manage to find the only clues in the case the police or anyone else have. This was a very i ...more

Fascinating, intriguing, and filled with twists and turns, Danse Macabre is a fabulous mystery novel. It kept me guessing, and I wasn't quite sure how things were going to turn out. I certainly wasn't expecting that surprise at the end.

Combe is a masterful storyteller, slowly adding pieces to the puzzle that ultimately creates a page-turning novel. I loved the relationship between Neve and Egan as they battle their own demons while solving the case. And though I wouldn't necessarily say it's som

This is the second book I have read in the series. I started with book 2 which I liked. And this book is just as good.

The story takes place during the holiday winter season which fits for cozy reading this time of year.

The friendship relationship between the detective duo of Neve and Egan is the heart of this series that keeps me interested in shadowing their investigations. Their banter and funny shared moments are entertaining.

I liked that this story revealed some of Egan's history especially

Mystery with a touch of romance.

Intriguing series. Each one different from the other but well written. A little romance with lots of mystery. Turns and twists intersect for a reading adventure.

I loved the way the characters played off of each other. The book was a fast paced thriller to the very end.

A serial killer is killing talented young women and posing them in situations that showcase their particular talent, for example a pianist is posed as though playing a piano in a former concert hall with her fingers broken so they could look like they were playing. The victims have their eyes sewn open. Neve and Egan are hired by a distraught mother to find her ballerina daughter who is missing at the same time as the murders are occurring. Again the villanouse Sorter rears his ugly head.

This is the third book in a series and I give the author kudos for not spending too much time rehashing the previous stories. The plot involves two British Private Detectives, one with some unique powers solving crimes in London all while coming up against a hidden criminal mastermind. The Police resent their interference; one of the PIs has seemingly unlimited access to unique sources.

There is a serial killer on the loose, taking and killing young women who are preforming artists. The killer l
