It was his first big murder case--and one of the bloodiest and
most violent crimes LAPD detective Danny McGuire would ever
encounter. Andrew Jakes, an elderly multimillionaire art dealer,
had been brutally murdered in his Hollywood home, his lifeless body
tied to his naked young wife. Raped and beaten, the lovely Angela
Jakes had barely survived the attack herself. Gazing into her deep,
soulful eyes, Danny swore that he'd find the psychopath behind this
barbarous act. But the investigation didn't turn up a single solid
lead, and within days of Angela's release from the hospital, the
stunning young widow--Danny's only witness--had vanished.
For ten years Danny McGuire could not forget the sweet face of
Angela Jakes and the terrible crime that had shattered her life;
his obsession with her nearly cost him his sanity. Now in France,
thousands of miles from the past--with a new life, a new job with
Interpol, and a ravishing new wife--he's happier than he's ever
been . . . until he meets Andrew Jakes's estranged son, Matt
Curious about his father's murder, Matt has been digging into
the cold case--and made some shocking discoveries. Three killings
nearly identical to his father's have taken place across the globe.
The victims were elderly, newlywed millionaires, their young wives
assaulted. And in each case the widow, the sole beneficiary of the
will, donated her newfound wealth to children's charities and then
vanished. Could it be true? Had the Jakes killer struck again? If
so, Danny knows he must tread carefully or risk losing everything
The evidence points to a single killer--a brilliant and ruthless
criminal who travels across the globe under a string of assumed
identities, cleverly keeping one step ahead of the law. Joining
forces, Danny and Matt pursue this intriguing shadow from Los
Angeles to London, New York to Italy and the French Riviera, in a
tantalizing game of cat and mouse filled with promising leads and
frustrating dead ends. When another murder fitting the profile
occurs, Matt heads to Hong Kong, hoping to get answers from the
latest widow, Lisa Baring, and perhaps uncover the hard evidence
But Matt becomes besotted with the irresistible beauty, nearly
derailing the investigation, and Danny wonders whether Lisa is
truly a victim or something more sinister. When a break in the case
sends Danny to Mumbai, he knows he must act quickly, for the clever
killer is poised to strike again.
A fast-paced story full of mystery, glamour, excitement, and
spectacular twists that build to a stunning ending, Sidney
Sheldon's Angel of the Dark is quintessential Sheldon from first
page to last.
