Trying to mix business with pleasure, KEY News correspondent Diane Mayfield has brought her children and her sister to the New Jersey Shore town of Ocean Grove to investigate a story on "girls who cry wolf" for the season premiere of "Hourglass," television's highly rated news magazine.
Diane lands an exclusive interview with a troubled young woman whose tale of being abducted and held against her will for three terrifying days had been disbelieved by the authorities. No sooner does Diane finish taping the interview, though, than a second victim disappears.

The small community, already in the grip of a record heat wave, is now wracked by fear and terror—no one knows who could be next. With only the first victim as eyewitness, Diane and the police turn to her for clues. But it may already be too late to save Diane and her loved ones from the mortal danger that lurks in Ocean Grove.

Her freshly laundered cotton blouse stuck to her back, and the starched collar was beginning to droop. The day hadn’t even begun and already she was a wilted mess.

Praise for Dancing in the Dark

“With suspects aplenty, Clark’s latest keeps readers on the edge of their seats…an eerie, surprising finale…haunting and entrancing.”—Romantic Times BOOKclub Magazine

“If you used to love Agatha Christie whodunits, then Dancing in the Dark is a book for you…the criminal could be anybody, and author Mary Jane Clark makes it fun to guess.”—Pelican Press (Sarasota, FL)

“Clarks books are fun to read because she salts them with details about life in the fast lane at network news stations.”—Orlando Sentinel

“Clark pulls off a nice surprise at the close.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A fantastic who-done-it…plenty of action and lots of false leads so that readers won’t guess who the real perpetrator is...when the audience discovers that person’s identity, they will truly be shocked.”—Midwest Book Review
