In New York, Denver, Paris, and Berlin, four people have died separately in apparent accidents. Two women, the widows of two of the dead, find themselves under ruthless attack and are drawn together in fear, confusion, and for mutual protection. But are they being targeted because one of them is the prosecution witness at a famous criminal trial? Or is there a connection to the mystery behind their husband's deaths?
Meanwhile, Tanner Kingsley, Chief Executive of an international think tank created only seven years ago, is on the cusp of an amazing discovery which could alter the future of the world. If properly handled, the outcome of this could deliver unbelievable power into the company's hands. But are the mysterious deaths connected to this volatile secret? And can it be further protected?
Thrown together, the women could not be more different: Diane Stevens is a well-connected, affluent artist from the Upper East Side. Kelly Harris is an African-American model who, having grown up in a rough Philadelphia neighbourhood with a new "uncle" every month, believed she had at last found safety and contentment in Paris, married to a brilliant scientist.
Taut with suspense and vivid characterization, and with an unnervingly realistic premise that could alter our lives, Are You Afraid of the Dark? is Sheldon at the top of his form.

"A breezily pleasing read." (Publishers Weekly)
"The best kind of guilty pleasure." (Booklist)
The story is a chain of adventures, always near things, very breathtaking. Cannot distinguish just one. Those who like Sheldon will not be disappointed.
At Saint Sebastian border control. The custom officer is a bright character.
I am pleased to recommend this item to everyone who likes mysteries and adventures. Besides, excellent style, perfect narration and superb language. This is Sidney Sheldon!!
"Boring, cheesy and unrealistic"
It was the only audiobook on my iPhone during a long journey, so I listened to the end. It was definitely the most boring, cheesy and unrealistic story I’ve heard in years.
