A dancer defects from a communist country and becomes the object of a stalker in New York City.

A premiere ballerina receives threats from an anonymous source if she leaves her country to seek asylum in America. After leaving, the threats continue. She also fears a particular ballet as being bad luck. With so much turmoil, who can she trust; to whom can she turn?

An interesting listen. I guessed part of it throughout the story, but not the whole thing. It was a little annoying hearing how she thought the ballet was cursed over and over again, but otherwise I thought it was an okay listen.

One of Marian Selde's better performances as a Czech dancer, who comes to America, (during the Cold War years), to avoid communist persecution. She is truly believable with her accent, as well as her manner and intonations, etc.
