In four cities across the world, four people die violently and mysteriously. The dead share a single crucial link: each was connected to an all-powerful environmental think tank. Two of the victims' widows-accomplished artist Diane Stevens and international supermodel Kelly Harris-may hold the key to their husbands' demise. Terrified for their lives, suspicious of each other, and armed only with their own wits and guile, they must join forces in a nightmare cycle of hunt-and-kill. At stake is the shattering truth about the tragedies that robbed them of the men they loved...and about an awesome conspiracy whose ultimate target is as big as the earth and as close as the air we breathe.

In 4 different cities around the world, 4 different people die mysteriously. All 4 of them worked for a powerful think tanks called KIG. Two of the victims' widows named Diane Stevens and Kelly Harris are forced to work together to avoid being killed and find out the real reason their husbands were killed using only their own brains. Are You Afraid Of The Dark is interesting from the start when it introduces you to the 4 murders that happened around the world. It does slow down a bit when it flashes back to show how the two lead characters met their husbands. The book tells you a bit too many times how much they both loved their husbands and how important they were, but it does help the reader understand the two characters a lot better. But when the two realise that they are also in danger and are on the run is when the book gets really interesting. It's a lot of fun to see the different ways the two avoid being killed using clever tricks and without any weapons at all. The twist at the end was surprising and unexpected but it makes sense and the book did hint towards it throughout the story. Almost every character in the book has their own backstory or motivation. Obviously this helps the protagonists to become better characters, but it also makes the antagonist much more of person instead of just some evil guy. Even the henchmen have their own story and personality. Seeing the two lead characters interact is also fun to read since they don't really like each other at first, but are still forced to work together to survive. Kelly usually keeps to herself and tries not to show too much emotion, while Diane is the opposite of her, and this is what makes the interactions fun. Are You Afraid Of The Dark has a very good mystery story, good characters and is filled with exciting action as well as a twist ending that may be a little unrealistic but still does work.

This is the best Sidney Sheldon story, and the postscript tells us so much about our real world.

A must read !!!
