Kick Ball Slay is a gripping murder mystery thriller by Doug Dorsey containing the added bonus of some useful tips on West Coast Swing dancing. A string of murders related to West Coast Swing dancing events bring Colorado Springs PD's Homicide Detective Evann Myrick to a world he had never ventured into before, the world of competitive dancing. Eager to solve the case as soon as possible, Myrick sets off to a swing dancing conference in Santa Fe at his own expense to catch the killer. But he soon realizes that if he wants to decipher the mystery, he will have to learn the fundamentals of swing dancing. However, time is running out, and as the number of victims, as well as the list of suspects, grows, Myrick finds himself being one of the targets.
A captivating sleuth tale that hooks you in from the first page and keeps you glued until the end, Kick Ball Slay puts a unique twist on the whodunnit genre that murder mystery lovers will devour with relish. Author Doug Dorsey keeps his cards close to the chest, and you find yourself trying to guess the identity of the killer, only to have the rug pulled out from under your feet over and over again until the climax. What makes the plot unpredictable is that every suspect has secrets to hide and believable motives for murder. Myrick is a tenacious and likable protagonist you can't help rooting for. The dancing tips are just the icing on the cake of a wonderfully thought-out murder mystery novel. Highly recommended.
