Product description

Product Description

Wolf Mallory already has his share of problems—including a congressional investigation and trying to figure out what to do with his life in southwest Florida after his forced retirement from military intelligence. When a friend asks him to talk to a young woman suspected of murder but claiming her innocence, Wolf has no idea what will happen.

Vicky Agincourt is smart, beautiful, and Wolf quickly finds she’s likely guilty of nothing more than trusting the wrong people. Someone murdered her lover, but Wolf is convinced Vicky didn’t pull the trigger. Unfortunately, well-connected people hiding along the fringes of the investigation have a lot to lose if Wolf succeeds in his mission to clear Vicky’s name. They’ll stop at nothing, including calling in favors from people in high places, to force Wolf off the scent.

But Wolf has friends of his own in low places. While he’s dancing on a tightrope to stay ahead of the killer, can he clear Vicky’s name in time before someone takes her—and him—out for good?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and compelling 17 September 2014
By Bookzilla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent, fast paced murder mystery with a little romance. Believable characters, entertaining dialogue and enough plot twists to keep the reader interested.

'I didn't know if it was her grief, agitation, or the drinks, but making sense of her conversation was like trying to understand an Escher painting after an all-night bender."

"I had a little expertise in accounting from my years in intelligence, but even though most of my projects were "black"--off the official roster--two constants in bureaucracy are paper trails and accountability. The problem was that, most of the time, the higher brass used those axioms to pass the blame on to the minions and keep themselves clean.
I had learned that lesson to my detriment."

I will re-read this book and look forward to more by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tightrope until it was darn near perfect. I'm not a fan of all these reviews ... 7 October 2014
By Robin Cain, Author of THE SECRET MISS RABBIT KEPT - Published on Amazon.com

Disclaimer: As a member of the same Internet Writing group as the author. I watched this story grow from draft to finished product. Some would claim that makes me biased, but in fact, it provides background for my praise of this story. I watched as this author toiled over Dancing On. A Tightrope until it was darn near perfect.

I'm not a fan of all these reviews that lay out the entire story for would-be readers, so let me just say that Wolfe (the main character) is someone will immediately draw you in. A tough guy with a big heart, he's everyone's favorite character. The investigation he gets involved with will grab your interest from the first chapter, and unlike a great many books, the ending will satisfy. A well- written, engaging and intelligent mystery that will make you a fan who anxiously awaits the author's next one.,
5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating read that kept me involved!!! 8 October 2015

Fascinating read that kept me involved and guessing most of the book. Jon Dalton is a new author to me but I decided to give him a try. Was not disappointed at all. Will be reading the next book in the series as soon as possible. Wolf Mallory is retired military intelligence and in a little trouble himself. He is awaiting a congressional investigation. While biding his time a friend asks him to talk to a suspect of murder, who is claiming to be innocent obviously, Ms. Vicky Agincourt. Once Wolf speaks with Vicky he begins to believe that she is innocent; realizing someone set her up Wolf agrees to help. What one must realize here is that Vicky is the lover of the deceased. There are many things at play. Can it all be sorted out in time? Did Vicky kill her lover?

I loved this book, enjoyed both main characters. The story had suspense and a good plot and the characters were both really likeable and made you root for them to make it thru the bad and come out on the other side and together. HEA with not CLIFFHANGER!!!! Yeah. Really solid storytelling, can't wait for more from this author.
5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully balanced dance 29 October 2014

Meet Wolf Mallory, an alpha in any pack. Unrelenting once he picks up the blood-trail, Wolf takes on the big bucks from D.C. to Florida's legal system and learns the difference between obeying orders and following the truth.

This is a winning first-story for a series establishing believable and colorful characters. The author's knowledge of of legal niceties, FL, and the tie with OH are a delight.
