|Plot Summary of Every Move You Make|
ST.Martin's, Mar 2002, 6.99, 320 pp.
Six months ago, her spouse Adam hit her with a nuclear bomb when he informed Regan that he wanted a divorce. All the problems of their marriage he blamed on her including their inability to have children even going so far as faulting her for his infidelities. Mentally battered, Regan acquiesced to his demands and fled across the continent to start anew in San Francisco with her sister Kat and her niece with little hope for her future.
Though Regan and Kat have not dated in seemingly eons, they agree to try places and events that draw males. However, unbeknownst to the siblings, a headliner serial killer the Dancemaster sees and begins stalking Regan, and starts killing women who moderately look like her. Police profiling fails to provide much insight as if the killer could magically hide in plain sight. The murderer audaciously sends email to Regan, which brings in FBI Agent Sam Sloan into her life who is near the obsession stage in his chase to end the deadly choreography of the Dancemaster.
EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE is an exciting psychological thriller starring a strong heroine still recovering from a life shattering experience and a deeply caring Fed. The support cast add depth so that the audience can understand Regan's grief over the death of her previous life and Sam's fixation to stop the serial killer. Though the characters are three-dimensional, this taut thriller belongs to the killer who turns Jill Jones' tale into quite a chiller.
