Thriller Review: “Angel of the Dark” By Sidney Sheldon
Even though Sidney Sheldon is not with us anymore, his novels and intriguing stories still remain on the top of our lists. Having sold more than 500 million copies, he ranks #1 in the Guinness book of records as the most translated author in the world. Angel of the Dark is the latest novel published from Sheldon and Tilly Bagshawe.
A Brief Summary:
LAPD Detective Danny McGuire could never forget the face of Angela Jakes and the nightmare she endured—raped, beaten, and tied to the murdered body of her elderly husband, multimillionaire art dealer Andrew. His obsession nearly cost McGuire his sanity, even after the stunning young widow disappeared without a trace. Ten years later, living in France and working for Interpol, he’s put the past behind him . . . until Matt Daley, Andrew Jakes’s estranged son, walks into his life.
Digging into his father’s still-unsolved murder, Matt has uncovered three identical slayings, and soon he is joining forces with Danny to pursue a brilliant, elusive killer across the globe. But in Hong Kong everything starts to crumble as Matt is irresistibly drawn to the most recent widow, beautiful Lisa Baring, whom Danny suspects may be someone far more sinister than just another victim…
Although we were aware that this is not a true “Sidney Shelton” novel (the book is written by the second author), we found it very close to his genre. Tilly Bagshawe does a great job in imitating Sheldon’s particular writing style. The story line, character development and of course the vivid descriptions of the places the story takes place in comes very close to Sydney’s style. A great quick read for the beach!
