Summary (From the publisher):

Who Killed Ella Sutton?

Sleuthing wasn't Peter Sargeant's job—but as publicity man for the Grand St. Petersburg Ballet he knew a lot about the dancers' private lives—which came in handy when Ella Sutton, the hated star of the company, was murdered in full view of an opening night audience.

And when police suspicion fell on Ella's trim, attractive understudy who'd captured Peter's susceptible hear, he used some fancy footwork to track down a fear-crazed killer.
