Are You Afraid Of The Dark ? was the first Sidney Sheldon book I read and I have to say I really enjoyed it. The basic plot concerns two women whose husbands have been murdered reluctantly team up to investigate their deaths. However things don't go as planned and their lives are in danger. The plot moves at a good pace (even if it is slightly James Bondish in places - which isn't a bad thing).There is no graphic sex or violence which makes a nice change from alot of books The two leading ladies make interesting characters and I hope they appear in future books. This is a light entertaing book and is ideal for enjoying while sitting on a nice sunny beech. I for one plan to read alot more of Sidney Sheldon's books.
