After the final curtain of Swan Lake, an animated crowd
exits the Mariinsky theatre brimming with excitement from
the nightâ€™s performance. But outside the scene is somber. A
ballerinaâ€™s body lies face down in the snow, blood
splattered like rose petals over the costume of the Swan
Queen. The crowd is silenced by a single cryâ€” â€śNemetseva is
Amongst the theatergoers is Lady Emily, accompanying her
dashing husband Colin in Russia on assignment from the
Crown. But it soon becomes clear that Colin isnâ€™t the only
one with work to do. When the dead ballerinaâ€™s aristocratic
lover comes begging for justice, Emily must apply her own
set of skills to discover the rising starâ€™s murderer. Her
investigation takes her on a dance across the stage of
Tsarist Russia, from the opulence of the Winter Palace, to
the modest flats of ex-ballerinas and the locked attics of
political radicals. A mysterious dancer in white follows
closely behind, making waves through St. Petersburg with her
surprise performances and trail of red scarves. Is it the
sweet Katenka, Nemetsevaâ€™s childhood friend and favorite
rival? The ghost of the murdered Ă©toile herself? Or,
something even more sinister?
