Review: Are You Afraid Of the Dark By Sidney Sheldon

Are you Afraid of the Dark was my third novel by Sidney Sheldon. The title of the book first got my consideration and I thought I ought to try it. Not surprisingly, I was actually impressed by the plot advancement. The plot improvement was magnificent, in its reasonable sense. The flashback, which Mr. Sheldon uses, became a compelling device as a part of the plot advancement.

Plot: Sheldon takes us directly into the story with a progression of death that is made to look like suicides. At the point when the spouses of two of the “suicide” casualties get together to share any useful info, they understand there is a peculiar association between their husbands’ deaths– both men worked for a giant research organization called the Kingsley International Group, and both men were en route to Washington, D.C., to meet with somebody about something dangerous. Something that would cost them, and twelve or so others, their lives. Something many refer to as “Prima.”

Our two champions, delightful model Kelly Harris and dazzling painter Diane Stevens, set out to meet with the perplexing proprietor of KIG, the splendid and effective Tanner Kingsley, who has as of late assumed control over the organization from its originator – his sibling, Andrew – after a shocking mishap that cost Andrew his capacity to think. Alternatively, would it say it was a mischance? Before long, Kelly and Diane are on the keep running from killers they can’t recognize, yet who appears to be by one means or another associated with KIG. Also, regardless of what they do or where they go, the killers know where they are. Someone powerful is behind the plan to end their lives and quiet them before they can realize what happened to their spouses.


As we move further into the story, more dead bodies turn up and our two ladies avoid bullets at every step as they attempt to sort out the story behind KIG and the numerous deaths connected with Prima. As they get nearer to reality, they encounter an enemy so shrewd and awful; they should fall back on their most profound qualities to attempt and stay alive.

About the Author: One of the world’s bestselling authors, Sheldon chose to take a shot at composing a novel when he got a thought that he couldn’t adjust to a play or a screenplay. His first novel, The Naked Face, won an Edgar in 1970 for the best mystery novel. He composed various books amid his lifetime including Tell Me Your Dreams, Bloodline, If Tomorrow Comes, and Rage of Angels. He passed away on January 30, 2007. His title Sidney Sheldon’s Angel of the Dark made The New York Times Best Seller List for 2012.

Verdict:  The story demonstrates that regardless of the amount of pain we need to experience, we can simply defeat it. Its stunning how Kelly and Diane handle the depression of their husbands’ deaths and fight to save their lives and additionally the entire world from prima The book is quick paced, and alongside a charming story, brings an abnormal state of anticipation and a surprising climax. The prose demonstrates a positive style that does not reflect numerous contemporary measures but rather works. This is a story that arouses the creative ability. The writer does the job of holding the attention of the reader to a great degree well.

The book is among the best I’ve ever read. He makes fun characters and uses short flashbacks wonderfully to bring the reader into the character’s mind. His utilization of cliché depictions, heroes and hooligans alike, really upgrades the read. We can see the activity happening and relate to every one of the players.

In case you’re into books with female characters as lead, if you like a secret that determines everything pleasantly, or on the off chance that you appreciate books which backtrack and forward between different bits of the story, you’ll adore this book. Regardless of the possibility that you’re a mystery fan, Sidney Sheldon is, as I would like to think, a writer you can simply go to when you’re searching for a simple, enjoyable read.
