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.

The very first book of Sidney Sheldon's that I read was "The Other Side of Midnight" and from that point forward I was hooked on writing. I always enjoyed the strong female characters and the way he wove the story together. I must have read the first few novels of his 10 times each .... You cannot compare this book to his earlier novels. He may have just needed the paycheck or has a vendetta against trees. The typical strong female characters are not in this book. Good plot twists & backstabbing family members are also missing.

This book is very predictable and not written all that well. I was a Sheldon fan for a very long time and I must say that this book has turned me off to his writing. Maybe if I go back and read "Morning, Noon, and Night" again it would change my mind. Turn off the light because this book is just not that good.

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?: A NOVEL is a contradiction in every way. It's silly--but it's compelling. It's absurd--but it's also totally believable. It's too short, even sketchy--yet it tells its story fully. And it's riveting entertainment.

In the hands of a lesser author, AFRAID might seem to be just a shlocky novel. Yet if this is garbage, it's garbage in the hands of the world's greatest living master of popular fiction.

Briefly, the novel is about an evil villain who is attempting to control the world by controlling...well, it's not fair to give away any secrets. The book certainly could be re-worked as a screenplay for James Bond--except that the good guys who conquer the evil are female.

There's quite a bit of information here, just blurted out in expository paragraphs, or spoken by the characters in long speeches. This technique would seem amateurish except, hey, it's Sidney Sheldon!

I'm no longer young, and Mr. Sheldon had won his Academy Award a full decade before I was born. In the years that followed, he also won a Tony Award on Broadway, and several Emmys for television. He's the man who was responsible for I DREAM OF JEANNIE, THE PATTY DUKE SHOW, HART TO HART.

Writing a book like AFRAID OF THE DARK has to be easy for a man of this much talent and this much skill. He probably is able to phone in his manuscript with one eye closed and one arm tied behind his back--and he may have done just that.

Still, because this author is the master of his art that he is, even with this novel's silly faults, it is a fascinating and plausible story. And someone's put some serious research into crafting the vehicle of evil.

According to his biography, Mr. Sheldon was born in 1917. This means that he's an old-fashioned kind of guy and, in ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK, he's written an old-fashioned kind of thriller. Read it and enjoy a master at work.

I am glad that Sidney is back. Most of his book are guaranteed to be a quick and fun read but some of his latest book have taken off on a different path and although I enjoyed them I was in no hurry to reach an end.

This book reminds me of Sidney's Windmills of the Gods and The Doomsday Conspiracy. This is story about how the head of the world's greatest think tank has murdered at least 3 of his top scientist because they figured out that his latest invention was not meant to save the world but to help him control the weather and in the process become richer and more powerful.

What's great about this story is that although the villains have the most high tech surveillance equipment, money and power behind them, they are always one step behind the two heroines of this book, Diane and Kelly. These two women befriend each other when they realize that their husbands were murdered by their employer. Once they realize this, the book is great roller coaster ride in which you are rooting for Diane and Kelly to outsmart the bad guys. Guess what, no surprise there as the girls outwit the bad guys each and every time. The fun of this book is trying to anticipate their next move.

Sidney Sheldon's latest novel follows in the tradition of his previous best-sellers and his fans will not be disappointed. This time out, we learn that several key employees of an international think tank have been horribly and mysteriously murdered. Two of their widows, Diane Stevens and Kelly Harris, join forces to uncover the truth and find themselves marked for death as well. We follow the intrepid ladies from New York to Europe and back again in a race against time to find the one responsible for killing their husbands, all the while being watched by a power-hungry madman who wants to control the world.

Sheldon specializes in breezy dramas featuring beautiful, strong, and infinitely resourceful young women; in this story, we get two of them - naive artist Diane and cynical supermodel, Kelly. There are frequent flashbacks to reveal details of their lives as well as insight into the villain's twisted mind. The ladies find themselves in mortal peril countless times, and they come out of each sticky situation by using their brains, pluck, and good-old-Sidney Sheldon girl-power.

If you like Sheldon's lightweight but often exciting brand of chick-flick-type novels, you will enjoy "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"
