Sidney Sheldon often said he was a storyteller and The Doomsday Conspiracy proves him to be a good one.
Commander Robert Bellamy answers the phone in the middle of the night and is ordered to report to General Hilliard at National Security Agency Headquarters at Fort Meade, at 0600 hours.
Bellamy¿s first thought as he hung up the phone was what could NSA want with him?
He was assigned to ONI The Office of Naval Intelligence.
After hurrying through his morning routine Robert Bellamy got into his car and drove to NSA Headquarters. Showing his identification at every stop, he negotiated a labyrinth of guards and gates before arriving at the office of General Mark Hilliard, Deputy Director of the NSA. Amenities were short and terse. Orders were already in place for Commander Bellamy to be transferred on temporary assignment from Naval Intelligence to NSA.
The problem was an international incident that seemed to be spinning out of control. A NATO weather balloon had crashed in the Swiss Alps carrying sensitive and secrete military equipment. The incident had to be kept under wraps. There were witnesses to the accident and they all had to be warned not to discuss what they saw. Commander Bellamy was to track them down and identify the witnesses but not to engage them in conversation. Others would do the debriefing.
Bellamy was given an almost impossible task -- track down an unknown number of unknown witnesses from unknown countries. The possibility of a successful investigation was not good.
And to complicate matters further Bellamy was not to use any of his old contacts or informants. That part of the order was strange but not unprecedented.
He arrived in Switzerland with only one hint of a clue. Back at his NAS briefing he was told that the witnesses had been aboard a bus and were part of a tour group.
Bellamy located the bus tour company involved and the driver. For a large sum of money the driver accompanied Bellamy to the crash site. They found a deflated weather balloon, but the bus driver said that wasn¿t what they saw the day before. The driver said it was some kind of a space ship or flying saucer.
Bellamy immediately thought of Roswell, New Mexico and UFO¿s. What was the NSA hiding?
Sheldon proceeds to lead us on a page turning romp through the Swiss Alps and Europe with Bellamy chasing and identifying witnesses. He eventually realizes that he has become a target and that the UFO theory was only part of a diabolical conspiracy.

The Doomsday Conspiracy, an exquisite, well-written novel from Sidney Sheldon. Of the many people who believe we are not the only life in the Universe, The Doomsday Conspiracy will overwhelm you. It gives readers another perspective from the government, who attempts to hide the foray from extra terrestrials, is the government hiding top secret information from the public? Commander Robert Bellamy is given sparse information on witnesses to ¿top secret¿ files, his only lead happens to be simple there were eleven witnesses. Commander Bellamy must find every answer within unknown sources, when he learns what the witnesses had witnessed, he becomes infatuated with his mission. The eleven bystanders had not watched a weather-balloon of secret information collapse to the ground, as the government had informed Commander Bellamy, but they had seen a UFO space ship crumble to Earth. Suspense builds on every page of this book, as Commander Bellamy traces down the witnesses, he learns their fate after his visit was not a auspicious one. You will never speculate the events of the thrilling novel! Sidney Sheldon creates an immense inquiry you will ponder through the book. Can we really trust anyone? There is no answer for Commander Bellamy until the end, in which he realizes his fate is also in jeopardy.

Just reading the Author's note at the end of the book made me realise how much effort and research Sidney Sheldon puts into his masterpieces. The book comes off the page with such an overwhelming amount of conviction and emotional power, that at times I couldn't tear my eyes off the pages. I decided to rate it 4 stars because aliens and UFOs invading the Earth doesn't seem like a very original idea, unlike most of Mr Sheldon's books.

Face it, Sidney Sheldon is no expert on science or UFOs, but he does believe in them and he tried to make an exciting UFO novel, and I think he succeeded. It's not his best, but it's still above the best of many other authors. Most of the novel is really about a spy on the run anyway, and there is a juicy love story thrown in, and the dazzling array of international locations keeps one turning pages. Besides, it's such a fast read that it isn't worth arguing about. If you're a Sheldon fan just buy it.

I'm always anxious to begin a read of one of my favorite authors, and Sheldon is certainly among them. I got all comfy and started to read, and I was feeling disappointed after the first couple chapters. I told myself to persevere. This was Sheldon, after all, and it HAD to get better. It didn't. In fact, it got worse. It seemed almost like somebody else wrote it. Please don't write anything like this again, Mr. Sheldon.

I see a lot of reviewers criticizing this novel, however, I found it very interesting. The protagonists seem well thought, the suspense keeps you thrilled at all times, so, what more do you want? This is certainly one of the best Science Fiction novel I have read in years.

i was amazed that sidney sheldon could write such an immature book,i mean after reading books such as'wind mills of the God'and'rage of angels'i could notice only one thing that his work is deterioriating by the day.the mystery is so kiddish that even a child can understand.the suspense is not at all smooth,his scenes are not whipping and his end is just not smashing.this book is certainly not a page turner!.i hope that he improves his work
