Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Author: Sidney Sheldon
In New York, Denver, Paris and Berlin, four people have died separately in apparent accidents. An
important link between the victims rises up from their ashes: each was employed by Kingsley
International Group (KIG), the world’s largest think tank, involved with major military strategy, worldwide
communications, and environmental issues. Soon, two of the murdered men’s wives, Diane Stevens and
Kelly Harris, find their own lives threatened. Terrified, suspicious of each other, and armed only with their
wits and guile, the beautiful, terrified women become reluctant allies in a life and death game of cat-and-
mouse. In his classic page-turning style that has become the standard, Sidney Sheldon combines smart,
engaging characters and an intricate plot in a powerfully compelling and suspenseful novel sure to hit
bestseller lists from coast to coast.
