All around the globe, people are being reported dead or missing.

In Berlin, a woman vanishes from the city streets. In Paris, a man plunges from the Eiffel Tower. In Denver, a small plane crashes into the mountains. In Manhattan, a body washes ashore from the East River. At first these seem to be random incidents, but the police soon discover that all four of the victims are connected to Kingsley International Group (KIG), the largest think tank in the world.

Kelly Harris and Diane Stevens, young widows of two of the victims, encounter each other in New York, where Tanner Kingsley, the head of KIG, assures them that he is using every resource to solve the mysterious deaths of their husbands. But he may be too late. Someone is intent on murdering both women, and they suffer a harrowing series of close escapes. Who is trying to kill them and why?

Forced together for protection, and suspicious of each other and everyone around them, the two widows embark on a terrifying game of cat-and-mouse against the unknown forces out to destroy them.

Taut with suspense and vivid characterization, full of shocking twists, and with an unnervingly realistic premise, the long-awaited Are You Afraid of the Dark? is Sidney Sheldon at the top of his game.

    " Of all the authors I have read so far...Sidney Sheldon is the one who has never disappointed me.He always comes up with breathtaking unputdownable suspense. The moment one thinks that this is it, there won't be any more surprises BOOM!! and the biggest secret is revealed to you.The ending of his novels are always unpredictable and I simply love them for this very reason...this novel just carries his legacy forward.There is one thing that caught my attention this time; the title of the novel. I love the way he has woven the story around the title and not just given a title according to the story and BTW I just simply love the dark!! "

    " I did a book project on this novel during my business foundation. Good story line and since its Sidney, enough said. However, he tends to have similar story lines and patterns in his collection and I tend to find it predictable and boring after some time. Nevertheless, a must-read :) "

    " As we expect from a Sheldon book it is infinitely interesting and you just can't put it down! A very brave idea about the weather machine and just a brutal and unexpected end. Very good! "

    " This was not one of the better Sidney Sheldon books. It was an easy read but the dialog lacked authenticity and the story line could have used a but more meat on the bone. "

    " The book is truly a page-turner; filled with excitement in every line. It gets confusing in the start a bit, but as you read on everything is explained in the most beautiful way. Everything has been given a wonderful ending. It was truly a book worth reading, and devoting my time to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Csferguson222 | 7/29/2011

    " A fast moving thriller about to women who share in common thact that husbands both worked for the same company and were both murdered. It soon becomes clear that someone is out to murder them as well. A bit too unbelievable at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob Jeremiah | 5/20/2011

    " The frequent switching of characters makes the book less of a page turner. "

    " Amazingly nrrated...The reader doesnt lose track at any point of time...nor does he/she gets bored "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathy | 4/22/2011

    " Awful. The writing was terrible. The story was pretty much told thru dialogue and, on occasion, the character's 'thoughts' were in italics. Hardly any character development at all. I'm not sure how Sidney Sheldon came to be a well-known author if he writes books like this. Yuck. Not a fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lolliepop | 3/25/2011

    " the third book by sidney sheldon that i'd read..compared to the other books by him, i would say that this book is quiet flat and not really surprise me.however, the way the women outwit the men is quite amusing although it is hard to believe a genius can easily be defeated~ "
