Guys.. It's book review time! :) Couldn't read and review any good books recently as i was busy and enjoying my travel to different places.
Title: Angel of the dark
Author: Tilly Bagshawe, Sidney Sheldon
Hardcover: 304 pages
Publisher: William Morrow
After a long gap of reading thrillers, I started this ‘on the edge’ thriller 2 weeks ago and it was very difficult to keep book away until I finished. This is written by Tilly Bagshawe, who is also one of the New York's best-selling authors. She writes in inimitable style of Sidney Sheldon researched from Sheldon's private archives.
LAPD detective Danny McGuire investigates a violent murder case of multi-millionaire Andre Jakes. Mrs. Andrew Jakes (Angela), who is a beautiful looking young wife is also raped and beaten by the criminal. Lovely Angela is the only clue to find the criminal, but she vanishes from the country. With all the ways closed, Danny couldn't find the murderer and had to leave police department and move to some other place in disappointment. While Danny starts his life in France afresh, Andrew Jakes’s son Matt comes to him asking his help to investigate on the murder. With his help, Danny could find similar kind of brutal murders happened in these 10 years in different parts of the world. All cases have only one thing in common, elderly multi-millionaires with a beautiful young wife. In all the cases, the young wife, who is the sole beneficiary of will, donates her complete property to charities. What is the motive of the crime? If the young wife is also helping the murderer, then why is she too beaten and raped?
What I liked?
Story seems to be intriguing till the end with enough twists and turns. It is a fast paced story, which is good. Met my expectation as a thriller.
What I didn't like..
Somehow, I feel the characters of ‘Sophia’ and ‘Marcini’ are not convincing to the reader at many points. Court trial at the end seems to be dragging to some extent. I didnt like the ending.
