After the final curtain of Swan Lake, an animated crowd
exits the Mariinsky theatre brimming with excitement from
the night’s performance. But outside the scene is somber. A
ballerina’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 cry— “Nemetseva 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 isn’t the only
one with work to do. When the dead ballerina’s aristocratic
lover comes begging for justice, Emily must apply her own
set of skills to discover the rising star’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, Nemetseva’s childhood friend and favorite
rival? The ghost of the murdered étoile herself? Or,
something even more sinister?
