Short Synopsis
A stunning and suspenseful tale of passion and betrayal, Cate Holahan's Dark Turns will take listeners deep into the mind of a murderer and the woman who must put an end to the killing.

Full Synopsis
Nia Washington is an incredible ballerina. She fought her way up from the streets and was nearing the pinnacle of her profession when an injury and a broken heart derailed her career. Taking a temporary job at an elite boarding school in Connecticut was supposed to give her time to nurse both body and soul. It was supposed to be a safe place to launch a triumphant comeback. It is anything but.

Shortly after she arrives at the beautiful lakeside campus, she discovers the body of a murdered student, and her life takes a truly dark turn. It's not long before she is drawn into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with a ruthless killer. And Nia isn't the only target. She must use all of her street smarts to protect her dancers, save a wrongfully accused student, and rescue the man she loves.

A stunning and suspenseful tale of passion and betrayal, Cate Holahan's Dark Turns will take listeners deep into the mind of a murderer and the woman who must put an end to the killing.

"Holahan nails the preppy ambience, the cliques, the conspicuous consumption, and the coltish beauties such as golden girl Aubrey Byrne . . . [in] this Black Swan pas de deux with Tartt’s The Secret History." ---Publishers Weekly

"Journalist Holahan’s debut will appeal to fans of precocious teen conspiracies like Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series, as well as to fans of grown-up, plucky-heroine-must-fight-for-herself thrillers." ---Booklist

"A simply riveting read from beginning to end, Dark Turns aptly demonstrates the impressive storytelling talents of author Cate Holahan." ---Midwest Book Review

"In this twisting danse macabre of jealousy, obsession, vanity, and revenge, Cate Holahan gives more than a superb debut performance. Dark Turns provides a master class in murder." ---Jan Coffey, USA Today bestselling author of Trust Me Once
