Revue de presse

"Brilliant, nail-biting...Original, fast-paced and absolutely unputdownable" (New Woman)

"The throat-clutching denouement is pure Clark - inevitable, horrible and, ultimately, irresistible" (People magazine)

Présentation de l'éditeur

New York's trendy magazines are a source of peril when a killer enacts a bizarre dance of death, using the personal ads to lure his victims...
After college, best friends Erin Kelley and Darcy Scott move to the city to pursue exciting careers; Erin is a promising jewelry designer, Darcy finds success as a decorator. On a lark, Darcy persuades Erin to help their TV producer friend research the kinds of people who place personal ads. It seems like innocent fun...until Erin disappears.
Erin's body is found on an abandoned Manhattan pier -- on one foot is her own shoe, on the other, a high-heeled dancing slipper. Soon after, startling communiques from the killer reveal that Erin is not the first victim of this "dancing shoe murderer." And, if the killer has his way, she won't be his last. Next on his death list is Darcy.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Née et élevée à New York, Mary Higgins Clark, d'origine irlandaise, revendique l'influence sur son écriture de cet héritage culturel : "Les Irlandais sont des conteurs-nés" rappelle-t-elle souvent. Et pourtant, rien ne prédestinait Mary Higgins Clark à devenir écrivain. Elle a dix ans quand son père meurt d'une attaque, laissant sa femme très démunie pour élever la petite Mary et ses deux fils. Malgré de brillantes études, Mary, à la sortie du lycée, s'inscrit dans un cours de secrétariat pour trouver du travail le plus rapidement possible, afin d'aider sa famille. Pendant trois ans, elle travaille dans une agence de publicité. Une envie de voyages la pousse à s'engager comme hôtesse de l'air à la Pan Am. Elle y restera un an avant d'épouser Warren Clark, qu'elle connaît depuis l'âge de seize ans. Peu après son mariage, elle commence à écrire des nouvelles qu'elle envoie aux journaux. Les refus sont nombreux mais Mary s'obstine et, en 1956, Extension Magazine publie enfin une de ses nouvelles. En 1964, Warren Clark meurt brusquement la laissant seule avec cinq enfants. Mary retrouve du travail et écrit des scripts pour la radio. Son premier livre publié, une biographie de George Washington, ne sera pas un succès? "Le livre était déjà en solde avant même d'être sorti de chez l'imprimeur ! " commente-t-elle non sans humour. Elle décide alors d'écrire un suspense. Ce sera La Maison du guet (Where are the children) qui devient immédiatement un best-seller. Le succès accompagnera tous ses livres par la suite. En France, les éditions Albin Michel publient en 1979 La Nuit du Renard donnant par la même occasion le coup d'envoi à la collection Spécial Suspense qui compte à ce jour 19 des 21 livres écrits par Mary Higgins Clark. Après ses premiers succès, Mary Higgins Clark qui s'était beaucoup consacrée à l'éducation de ses enfants, décide de rattraper le temps perdu : elle entre à l'Université de Fordham au Lincoln Center et passe un diplôme de philosophie. Elle a par ailleurs présidé en 1988 l'International Crime Congress, à New York. En 1987, elle était présidente du Mystery Writers of America dont elle a été un membre actif pendant de nombreuses années. La reine du suspense est l'auteur féminin du genre qui vend le plus de livres aux Etats-Unis : plus de 50 millions en "hard cover". Ses romans sont des best-sellers dans le monde entier, en France notamment avec plus de 20 millions d'exemplaires vendus. Mary Higgins Clark a reçu en 1980 le Grand Prix de Littérature policière pour La Nuit du renard et en 1998 le Prix du Festival du film de Deauville. En 1999, un sondage paru dans Le Monde la donnait en seconde position des auteurs les plus lus par les jeunes de 18 ans.

This was a wonderful book by MHC. I had to stop reading it when I was alone in my house. It kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book. Darcy and Erin have been best friends since college and now they both live in NY. The two of them start answering personal ads as a favor to a friend. Erin and Darcy have fun comparing who they meet until the day Erin mysteriously disappears. Her body is found on an abandoned pier. She is oddly wearing a dancing slipper on her foot. Though the police disagree, Darcy knows Erin was murdered by the person Erin answered the personal ad to. Darcy is determined to find Erin's killer. Little does she know, Darcy is the next victim!

Being a fan of Mary Higgins Clark's books, I decided to buy this book to see whether it would be as good as her others. After reading it, I must say that I am not disappointed at all with this book.

`Loves Music, Loves To Dance' is about Darcy Scott and Erin Kelly, who are best friends, and decide to answer some personal ads, as sort of an experiment for their TV producer fried Nona Roberts, who is doing a segment on what type of people place personal ads. Unknowing to them, there is a serial killer who places his ads on the paper, and kills women who answers his `special ad'. Unfortunately for Erin and Darcy, they both send responses to this guy, not knowing who he really is. A few days later, Erin is found brutally murdered, with a dancing shoe on one feet and an ordinary shoe on the other, which is the way the serial killer leaves all his victims. Feeling guilty and determined on catching the killer, Darcy decides to meet the dates that Erin went out with through the personals ( which was not a problem since they both responded to the same ads).

As the story progresses, we are introduced to many suspects who could be the killer. There's Gus Boxer, the disgusting superintendent of the building where Erin worked; Doug Fox (Doug Fields) who was a suspect to a previous murder and was one of Erin's dates through the ads; Jay Stratton, who hired Erin Kelly to design jewelry for a customer; and Len Parker, a weirdo who follows all his dates he meets though the personals, including Erin and now Darcy.

Mary Higgins Clark did a wonderful job writing `Loves Music, Loves To Dance'. It has suspense, romance, horror, and a surprising climax; everything that you would want to read in a good thriller. It is fast-paced and keeps the reader interested throughout. All in all, it's a good read. Once you start reading, you will be completely absorbed in the book that you won't notice the time fly.

Most of us have not only have favorite authors whose books are "auto" buys for us, but most of us also could name our most favorite book by said author....(i.e. Harvest if my most favorite Tess Gerritsen book)..............Well, Love's Music, Love's to Dance has always (and will forever remain) my most favorite MHC book!!! This book kept me on the edge of my seat..........a madman who likened himself to the great Fred Astaire, and his victims to his dancing partner, Ginger Rogers......this is one of those books that actually made goosebumps appear on my arms! Erin and Darcy, best friends,move to NYC together. While each one of them has their own career, they decided to help a tv producer who was doing a documentary on newspaper personal columns....a study as to what type of people place and answer these ads; their experiences, good or bad.... In six weeks of meeting people, they each had some funny stories to tell.....it all seemed so innocent.,...until the night Erin disappeared after meeting someone who placed an ad....Her body was found on a pier in Manhattan, and she was wearing one of her shoes, and one very fancy high heel shoe..... Darcy delves into finding out who killed her best friend...not knowing that she is the murderer's next victim! This book is typical MHC style..........plethora of characters to keep us guessing .......... a building up of tension as the pages fly by.......... a twisted ending......... This book has been recommended soooooooo many times by me to soooo many people.........I've lent out my two copies and I bought quite a few for presents.....no matter how great her other books are, this is THE one that's at the top of my list!! Oh, by the way, don't count on going to bed at night, until you finish the book..........it's one you can't put down!!

Erin and Darcy, two very good friends, agree to answer personal ads in New York, but soon the fun turns to terror. Soon, Erin is found lifeless on an abandoned pier with a beautiful dancing slipper on one foot. Not knowing that Erin is not the first victim Darcy sets out to find the killer herself. Now she is the next one the killer has his eyes on. Even though I love all of Mary Higgins Clark books I have read, this one has to be the best yet! It keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end! I would recommend it for 6th graders- adult. I would definitely give it 5 stars!

This is a fascinating book! Definately MHC at her best! Erin Kelley and Darcy Scott, best friends since college,have found theirselves at a high point in their life. Both have promising careers,and love to dance. To help a friend with a documentary, Darcy persuades Erin to answer personal ads. All goes well until one night when Erin disappears. Later, her body was found partially thawed on a pier in Manhattan. On one foot was her own boot, but on the other was a spiked heel dancing slipper. At first, it seems as if Erin was the victim of a copy-cat murderer- because of a program shown on telivision the night before about a girl who died the same way- but Darcy and an FBI agent know that the deaths are linked; not only to each other, but to the other missing women who answered personal ads. Darcy blames herself for Erin's murder, and seeks to find the man who killed her, by dating men from personal ads herself. What Darcy does not know is that she has been chosen by the murderer, to die. And this time, he won't give her back. I enjoyed this thriller with its high level of suspense. MHC is a great author and wrote this book with great detail. I recommend this to anyone, especially those who love music, and love to dance.
