Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Tilly Bagshawe, continuing the enduring legacy of number one best-selling suspense author Sidney Sheldon, is back with a new tale of glamour, suspense, and unexpected twists in Sidney Sheldon’s A Silent Widow.

A young American au pair, Charlotte Clancy, vanishes without a trace in Mexico City. The case is left cold, but its legacy will be devastating.

A decade later, Los Angeles is shaken by a spate of violent murders. Psychologist Nikki Roberts is the common link between the victims, her patients at the heart of this treacherous web. When someone makes an attempt on Nikki’s life, it’s clear she is a marked woman.

Nikki makes a living out of reading people, drawing out their secrets, but the key to this shocking pattern eludes her. With the police at a dead end, Nikki drafts Derek Williams, a PI who isn’t afraid to put his hand into the hornet’s nest. Williams was thwarted in the notorious Charlotte Clancy case all those years ago, but what he unearths in LA - and the mention of one name in particular - leaves him cold...and takes him on a dangerous path into the past.

A shadowy manipulator has brought his deadly game to the streets of LA. In a crime spanning generations, it seems Nikki Roberts knows far too much - and a ruthless killer knows the price of her silence.

In this crooked city, where enemies and friends are one and the same, Nikki must be the master of her own escape.

Excellent title!

This was a great title! I love Sidney Sheldon mysteries. They are full of suspense and crazy storylines that a confuse you initially, but work out in complicated endings that wow the reader. This was the first audiobook of Sheldon’s that I’ve listened to, and I truly enjoyed it. My only criticism is of the tone/dialect chosen to voice the African American characters. As an African American woman, I found the way that some of the characters - namely Trey’s mother and grandmother — were voiced as slightly offensive and stereotypical. Other than that, it definitely was a great read.

Graphic violence

This book is very violent to the point it upset my stomach. I would like a refund.

Worth a read, but I expected better out of Tilly

Just a”meh” read. Definitely too mediocre to part of the, otherwise excellently written, Sidney Sheldon Series she has penned. Also, while I am a huge Tilly Bagshawe fan, would it kill her to put some blacks in positions of influence in some of her books? Instead of relegated to the same old hard-knocks. Poverty stricken backgrounds and/or sassy black administrator positions. No point of even putting them in the story at all if their roles in her stories are always gonna be so minor. Just my two cents; but I will likely still read her stuff if she comes out with more.

The silent widow

I enjoyed this book as it started, but I literally have about two hours left and I’m so through with waiting. The storyline is far too long, with too many characters, and overall just lost any momentum or suspense or any interesting drama. Actually reviewing now and not even going to listen till the end because I simply cannot stand another minute.

Don't wast your money

If you are a fan of Sidney Sheldon then you read this book, this is the same story as The Naked Face. To the point of the therapist lending the rain coat out and the person getting killed by mistake. The killer is after Dr. because his wife is seeing the Dr. wife's husband is career criminal, afraid wife is telling to much, yada yada yada. With all the stories the mind can make up why steal a already told story? Read the Naked Face a much better story.

Couldn’t Stop Listening

First Sidney Shelton book (aka Tilly Bagshawe) This is a literal “page-turner”. Finished in 2 days. Put me in a really dark mood at times, but these kind of stories have the best pay off in the end. I will take the trade off.

great story

I must say that I am amazed how many mistakes get through editing and review. Spaghetti Bongalese anyone? Other than that and some other egregious mistakes, the story was really good.
