From the book jacket:
The first time
Bridger saw Dana she was dancing barefoot, her hair aflame in
the red glow of the club, her body throbbing with rhythms and
cross-rhythms that only she could hear. He was mesmerized. That
night they were both deaf, mouthing to each other over the
booming bass. And it was not until their first date, after he
had agonized over what CD to play in the car, that Bridger
learned that her deafness was profound and permanent. By then,
he was falling in love.
Now she is in a courtroom, her legs shackled, as a list of
charges is read out. She is accused of assault with a deadly
weapon, auto theft, and passing bad checks, among other things.
Clearly there has been a terrible mistake. A manhis name is
William "Peck" Wilson as Dana and Bridger eventually...
