Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Wow, he doesn’t let up. It’s been four years since we had one of these international blockbusters and he’s got seventeen bestsellers under his belt. He still delivers a cracking good plot-based yarn with unexpected twists and good characters. You’ll love it.

Comparison: John Grisham, Jeffrey Archer, James Patterson.

Similar this month: David Baldacci, Nelson DeMille.

Synopsis

Are You Afraid Of The Dark? by Sidney Sheldon

In New York, Denver, Paris and Berlin, four people have died separately in apparent accidents.

Two women – the widows of two of the dead – find themselves under ruthless attack and are drawn together in fear, confusion and for mutual protection. But are they being targeted because one of them is the prosecution witness at a famous criminal trial? Or is there a connection to the mystery behind their husband’s deaths?

Meanwhile, Tanner Kingsley, Chief Executive of an international Think Tank created only seven years ago, is on the cusp of an amazing discovery which could alter the future of the world. If properly handled, the outcome of this could deliver unbelievable power into the company’s hands. But are the mysterious deaths connected to this volatile secret? And can it be further protected?

Thrown together, the women could not be more different: Diane Stevens is a well-connected, affluent artist from the Upper East Side. Kelly Harris is an African-American model who, having grown up in a rough Philadelphia neighbourhood with a new ‘uncle’ every month, believed she had at last found safety and contentment in Paris, married to a brilliant scientist.

Taut with suspense and vivid characterization, and with an unnervingly realistic premise that could alter our lives, ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK is Sheldon at the top of his form.

Reviews
