9780007442836: Sidney Sheldon's Angel of the Dark

The master storyteller's legacy continues. An elusive and shadowy killer is on the prowl, codenamed the Angel of Death. When an elderly multimillionaire is found brutally murdered in Hollywood, and his young wife raped and beaten, the police assume the motive is robbery. Unable to find the perpetrators, the case is eventually closed. A decade later, in different cities around the globe - St Tropez, London and Hong Kong - three almost identical killings take place within 5 years of each other. In all cases the victim is male, wealthy, elderly and newly married, and his wife is found at the scene either raped or assaulted. At first it is thought they might be copycat killings, but it soon becomes clear that this is one killer, moving around the globe and changing her identity over many years. Codenamed Angel of Death by the police, is she avenging some long-forgotten misdeed, or does she have other motives? Who will be her next victim, and how can the Angel of Death be prevented from striking again?

From the Back Cover:

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Master Sidney Sheldon, based on notes he left behind, comes a thrilling tale of murder, lies, and lust.

LAPD Detective Danny McGuire could never forget the face of Angela Jakes and the nightmare she endured—raped, beaten, and tied to the murdered body of her elderly husband, multimillionaire art dealer Andrew. His obsession nearly cost McGuire his sanity, even after the stunning young widow disappeared without a trace. Ten years later, living in France and working for Interpol, he's put the past behind him . . . until Matt Daley, Andrew Jakes's estranged son, walks into his life.

Digging into his father's still-unsolved murder, Matt has uncovered three identical slayings, and soon he is joining forces with Danny to pursue a brilliant, elusive killer across the globe. But in Hong Kong everything starts to crumble as Matt is irresistibly drawn to the most recent widow, beautiful Lisa Baring, whom Danny suspects may be someone far more sinister than just another victim . . .

About the Author:

Tilly Bagshawe is the internationally bestselling author of seven previous novels. A teenage single mother at 17, Tilly won a place at Cambridge University and took her baby daughter with her. She went on to enjoy a successful career in The City before becoming a writer. As a journalist, Tilly contributed regularly to the Sunday Times, Daily Mail and Evening Standard before following in the footsteps of her sister Louise and turning her hand to novels. Tilly's first book, Adored, was a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic and she hasn't looked back since. Tilly and her family divide their time between their homes in Kensington and Los Angeles and their beach house on Nantucket Island.
