Sidney Sheldon – Are You Afraid Of The Dark?


I have to be honest here.

The start of this book, is by far the best i have ever witnessed.

4 murders take place in different parts of the world.

All 4 are brilliant scientists, working for a think-tank called “Kingsley International Group”

Also known as KIG.

The murders are made to look like suicides.

The widows of two of the deceased scientists, come to find the answer from KIG’s half owner, Mr.Tanner Kingsley.

The other owner is Andrew Kingsley. He is Tanner’s older brother.

Due to a failed lab experiment, he loses all his wit, intelligence, he can’t even remember for what did he win the Nobel prize.

Andrew is a nice guy, who wants to help the world of people who don’t have as much facilities as the U.S.

Tanner on the other hand is interested in ruling the world, and making more money!

Anyways, coming back to the scene where the widows, Kelly & Diane speaking to Tanner,

The man appears to be empathetic and tells the ladies everything that he knows.

he assures them of answers which he is trying to find out, as its not the first time, it has happened.

There were 2 murders prior to this , both of brilliant scientists well associated with KIG & were shown as suicides.

The 2 widows, then start investigations to their own, oblivious to the fact that they are on the cross-heir of the killer.

They have no guns, no armory, but only their Wit.

With that they avoid many attacks which are made to put them to death.

Mid-way they seem to realize that the killer seems to know each of their steps.

They finally get to know who he is.

Tanner Kingsley!!!

The guy with so much powers, has thugs working for him, that too professional in their work.

The guy has state of the art technology.

They can’t even do a telephone call, because his voice recognition device will catch hold of their location.

They can’t even do as much of a Google search!!

They find ways and means to find out the actual reason why their husbands and others were killed.

They finally get the answer.

Kingsley had created something which would make him the GOD of the new world…

What happens next forms the crux of the story, with a mysterious guy finishing Tanner Kingsley forever!!

They guy being Tanner’s older brother Andrew.

He didn’t know much, but had created the machine itself.

He knew what his brother’s intentions were and thus made it a point that he ends the story himself.

This story is a must read for every mystery lover!!

My Rating – 4/5
