Summary
Once again, author Tilly Bagshawe takes up the mantle of the late, great Sidney Sheldon--and again, she succeeds magnificently. Written in the inimitable Sheldon style and based on extensive, never before published material from his private archives, Sidney Sheldon's Angel of the Dark is a thrilling tale of murder, lies, and lust that the master storyteller--the bestselling author of Master of the Game, The Other Side of Midnight, and so many other beloved classics--would have been proud to have called his own. With Sidney Sheldon's Angel of the Dark, a gripping, stylish, sexy and surprising story of a son's globe-hopping hunt for answers about his wealthy father's brutal death, confirmed Sheldon fans have good reason to rejoice. The legacy truly lives on.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Based on notes found among the late Sheldon's papers, and written by the author of several popular novels (including two previous, Sheldon-inspired books), this melodramatic thriller begins in 1996, with the murder of a wealthy art dealer, Andrew Jakes, followed soon after by the disappearance of his beautiful and much younger widow. A decade later, the dead man's son, Matt Daley, starts looking into his father's murder and discovers that it may have been one of a string of homicides, all of them committed by a woman known only as the Angel of Death. Teaming up with the L.A. detective who originally investigated Jakes' death, Matt puts everything on the line to uncover the truth. Despite a slight overabundance of purple prose ( Surveying the carnage in front of him, Danny was aware of the In-N-Out burger he'd eaten earlier fighting its way up into his esophagus in a desperate bid for freedom ), the book has a cleverly constructed plot, some engaging characters, and a suspenseful story. Although clearly aimed at Sheldon's legion of fans, the book should appeal equally to the broader range of thriller readers.--Pitt, David Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "At the start of Bagshawe's intriguing third Sidney Sheldon- homage (after 2010's Sidney Sheldon's After the Darkness), police answering a domestic violence call discover Andrew Jakes, an elderly art dealer, stabbed to death and nearly decapitated in his well-secured Beverly Hills mansion. His young wife, Angela, brutally raped and traumatized, is tied to his body. Lead detective Danny McGuire falls in love with the sensuous Angela, herself a suspect, and is totally mystified when the Jakes' fortune of $400 million is left to charity and Angela disappears. With the case becoming cold, McGuire joins Interpol and is soon investigating international cases with eerie similarities to the L.A. murder: elderly moguls are found savagely stabbed to death, their young wives raped and tied to their bodies; the money is left to charity, then the wife vanishes. A hearty sensuality and wry humor propel this energetic story, which moves from one exotic locate to another as Maguire pursues a possible serial killer.
