But when a photograph of the body of one of the men they're recruited to dominate -- strapped to a gurney, the number 1 inked on the sole of his foot -- is sent to the New York Times, they are shocked and frightened. Unable to cope with the tragedy, the women turn to Dr. Morgan Snow. But what starts out as grief counseling quickly becomes a murder investigation, with any one of the twelve women a potential suspect.

The case leads Detective Noah Jordan -- a man with whom Morgan has shared a brief, intense connection -- to her office. He fears the number on the man's foot hints that the killings have just begun. With her hands tied by her professional duty, Morgan is dangerously close to the demons in her own mind -- and the flesh-and-blood killer. "

SOS - "Those who grew up along the Carolina coast appreciate its beauty for more than just the scenery. Long before ballroom dancing became a household word, Carolinians “shagged on the strand,” and the dance craze reached its peak in the 1960s. The Society of Stranders (SOS) keeps the tradition alive by sponsoring a bi-annual gathering in North Myrtle Beach.

Fair-haired Peri Mason was not one of those sweet Southern girls who took part in the smooth, sensual dance, but she is ready to rectify that shortcoming. She and two of her friends travel together to North Myrtle Beach for an SOS reunion. Widowed and determined to leave her investigative reporter hat behind, Peri wants a little R&R – and R- rest, relaxation and romance.

The three women begin their weekend adventure at Fat Harold’s, a popular dancing club. But Peri, with her penchant for attracting trouble, has an encounter with a renegade cat, a rude redheaded woman – and two half-naked men in a nearby alley – one dead, one very sick. Another body is discovered later that night, yet another redhead. Who is responsible and what does the cat have to do with the bodies that keep piling up?

Peri’s plans for learning to shag will change to proving her innocence, figuring out whodunit, and avoiding becoming a victim herself. "
