Looks to me like she's standing on the 125th Street 1 station platform. And I have issues about her carrying her pointes around like that and no gigantic bag with 3 extra pairs of shoes, tights, etc.

But the book sounds awesome and I can't wait to read it.


Spies!* Ballet! Mystery! Add to it that there is not insta-love and it's sold. Just checked and my library has it on order. Sign me up.

*Since this is spies in the George Smiley mode (which makes me want to read this even more), technically there shouldn't be an exclamation point after "spies" since they're low key spies. However, it's more that I'm excited for a spy novel. Since the end of the cold war, there just aren't as many spy novels being written. How many times can I reread the Smiley novels?


p.s. Also love that the title cleverly plays on the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy riff.


I thought it was kind of boring-the visions were so weird and I wanted a lot more ballet than I got, considering dancer is the first word in the title. I think I'm more a fan of Ally Carter than le Carre so that probably explains my perspective.
