All around the globe, people are being reported dead or missing.
In Berlin, a woman vanishes from the city streets. In Paris, a man plunges from the Eiffel Tower. In Denver, a small plane crashes into the mountains. In Manhattan, a body washes ashore from the East River. At first these seem to be random incidents, but the police soon discover that all four of the victims are connected to Kingsley International Group (KIG), the largest think tank in the world.
Kelly Harris and Diane Stevens -- young widows of two of the victims -- encounter each other in New York, where Tanner Kingsley, the head of KIG, assures them that he is using every resource to solve the mysterious deaths of their husbands. But he may be too late. Someone is intent on murdering both women, and they suffer a harrowing series of close escapes. Who is trying to kill them and why?
Forced together for protection, and suspicious of each other and everyone around them, the two widows embark on a terrifying game of cat-and-mouse against the unknown forces out to destroy them.
Taut with suspense and vivid characterization, full of shocking twists, and with an unnervingly realistic premise, the long-awaited Are You Afraid of the Dark? is Sidney Sheldon at the top of his game.
Performed by Kit Flanagan

This is pure Sidney Sheldon Gucci-filled international intrigue. In New York, Denver, Paris, and Berlin, four people die in separate but suspicious accidents, two beautiful women are in peril, and an evil CEO has a plot (Prima) to take over the world. Soon Interpol identifies two apparently connected suicides, and there's a freakish hailstorm in Iran. Flanagan's timing and inflection maintain the drama of this novel, all the while building a sense of dread as we begin to understand the sinister terror that Prima holds. Sheldon's plot rests on a disarmingly realistic--and scary--premise that will surely keep listeners hooked. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
