Dancing Dismemberment
29 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two cases that Frost takes up after his dismissal from the force (a rather anti- climactic hearing, to say the least). The first is a strange connection to ballroom dancing where participants have been found dismembered. The second involves a man who is leading a double life. He has wives in two places. Unfortunately, he has been found murdered and Jack has been put on the case. The former shows us competitive ballroom dancing to be quite cutthroat, if you will. It has a sort of Sunset Boulevard character who can't seem to find the right partner. The latter brings in some factors not put into evidence. Jack is his usual crusty self, taking over like he had never been gone. The writing here is inferior to prior efforts. He does have some nice moments with Sally, his partner for this one. She is a lesbian and Jack seems to have finally come to grips with this fact.
