‘Even with all the pulpiness, suspense and thriller elements that exist in ‘Dancer’s Rain’, Sutherland writes some insightful, thought provoking, and beautiful prose bordering on the poetic… the novel transcends its genre at times, causing the sexual encounters and violence to clash against its conservative rural setting. Is it unsettling? Absolutely. It blurs the lines between right & wrong, reality & fantasy, and life & death. This is a serious bit of writing hidden within an exploitation genre.’ – Tim Rayne, CHSR-FM
There was a time when Frank Stallings was as good a homicide detective as anyone on the planet – but not now. Now he’s come home, settled in as police chief in the small town where he grew up. He’s lost his edge, become too comfortable – at least until his comfort zone is shattered by two stunning newcomers.
Frank isn’t the only one who notices. Their arrival brings a monster to the surface – an apex predator who’s survived this long by exercising an icy control over the terrifying urges that drive him. Now he’s headed for meltdown – and Frank may not have what it takes to stop him.
