Every detective has a case that haunts them. For former LAPD Det
Ten years later, Danny Mcguire, newly married, living in France, and working for Interpol, has all but moved on from the Jakes case. He is still haunted by the look in the young wife's eyes, but has accepted that he will never know the truth behind the killing. Then one day he is contacted by Matt Daley. Daley is a struggling script writer who happens to be the estranged son of Andrew Jakes. In an attempt to discover a compelling story, he looks into his father's case and finds that other murders fitting the exact profile of his father's have occurred in various cities around the world. When his relays this information to Danny, the two embark on a fast paced, world wide investigation to uncover the truth behind these murders.
Although the bestselling author, Sidney Sheldon, passed away in 2007, author Tilly Bagshawe continues his tradition of fast paced, intriguing mysteries in a expert manner. This story had as many plot twists as we've grown accustomed to in stories like this, and the ending is sure to leave readers reeling. The beginning of this novel has several time, location and character changes over a short number of pages. While this is vital to the telling of the story, I felt that the jumps could be a bit confusing. Fortunately, I stayed with it, and the last two-thirds of the novel were clearly written and very entertaining. This novel is a solid addition to the mystery genre and a nice continuation of the Sidney Sheldon legacy.

This might have been Sidney Sheldon's idea for a story but the developement of it was truly boring. Definately not a page turner. Too much useless dialog and to much writing that is not saying anything. Tilly should just write under her name rather that being disappointed at something with Sheldon's name on it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I didnt like it at all. Too confusing and too unbelievable. When Sidney Sheldon lead you into those kind of endings they caught you off gaurd because of his wonderful and believable writting skills it all flowed so good. This ending was blah ---------nothing flowed together to make it believable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
