It was his first big murder case, and one of the bloodiest and most violent crimes LAPD detective Danny McGuire would ever encounter. Andrew Jakes, an elderly multimillionaire art dealer, had been brutally murdered in his Hollywood home, his lifeless body tied to his naked young wife. Raped and beaten, the lovely Angela Jakes had barely survived the attack herself. Gazing into her deep, soulful eyes, Danny swore that he’d find the psychopath behind this barbarous act. But the investigation didn’t turn up a single solid lead, and within days of Angela’s release from the hospital, the stunning young widow, Danny’s only witness, had vanished.

For ten years Danny McGuire could not forget the sweet face of Angela Jakes and the terrible crime that had shattered her life. His obsession with her nearly cost him his sanity. Now in France, thousands of miles from the past, with a new life, a new job with Interpol, and a ravishing new wife, he’s happier than he’s ever been…until he meets Andrew Jakes’s estranged son, Matt Daley.

Curious about his father’s murder, Matt has been digging into the cold case and made some shocking discoveries. Three killings nearly identical to his father’s have taken place across the globe. The victims were elderly, newlywed millionaires, their young wives assaulted. And in each case the widow, the sole beneficiary of the will, donated her newfound wealth to children’s charities and then vanished. Could it be true? Had the Jakes killer struck again? If so, Danny knows he must tread carefully or risk losing everything for good.

The evidence points to a single killer, a brilliant and ruthless criminal who travels across the globe under a string of assumed identities, cleverly keeping one step ahead of the law. Joining forces, Danny and Matt pursue this intriguing shadow from Los Angeles to London, New York to Italy and the French Riviera, in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse filled with promising leads and frustrating dead ends. When another murder fitting the profile occurs, Matt heads to Hong Kong, hoping to get answers from the latest widow, Lisa Baring, and perhaps uncover the hard evidence they need.

But Matt becomes besotted with the irresistible beauty, nearly derailing the investigation, and Danny wonders whether Lisa is truly a victim or something more sinister. When a break in the case sends Danny to Mumbai, he knows he must act quickly, for the clever killer is poised to strike again.

A fast-paced story full of mystery, glamour, excitement, and spectacular twists that build to a stunning ending, Sidney Sheldon’s Angel of the Dark is quintessential Sheldon from first page to last.

    " This is the third book I've read of Tilly Bagshawe writing for Sidney Sheldon and I enjoyed this one very much. It might even be my favorite. The story was gripping and as many murder mysteries as I read, I was at least half way through before I started any thoughts as to "who did it?" I'll look forward to her next one. "

    " The plot was way over the top with the same woman seducing and marrying five very rich men. This could never happen. I know it's entertainment, but the story was too unbelievable. While it did hold my attention, frankly, I got really tired of the constant description of Sofia as so utterly beautiful that every man falls under her spell. The author focused way too much on how people look and how beautiful they are to the point it became really annoying to me. I think it went on a little too long, we really didn't need the trial, it would have sufficed to say there were guilty verdicts and then gone on to what happens with Matt and Sofia at the end. Frankly, Sidney Sheldon would have done a much better job with the material. "
