I¿m not one to read many mysteries. I read one for a college class and hated it. I¿ve never read any Sheldon either, so I didn¿t really know what to expect. Why did I pick this one up? Really only because it was on top of a box lot I received recently from eBay. Overall though, it really wasn¿t that bad and was a quick read. Not sure if this is a typically book for Sheldon, but I might be convinced to try him again, though I probably won¿t go out of my way to read another. Not bad but just not my style either.

I read this book as a teenager and now again in my late 30's. Luckily I had forgot the ending, but the read was still so enjoyable. It's a perfect weekend book as it is relatively short compared to today's novels. There is certainly a vintage feel with all of the anachronisms of pre-computer life.

this is one of the worse of his a big fan of all his books and usually cannot put them down untill im done but this one was a hard one to even pick back only motivation for finishing it was to get it over with because i don't like to leave anything unfinished.

I am just a starter to Sidney Sheldon's long and huge Ampire of Books , I have read the book named ' The Sky is Falling ' . I loved that book so much so that i read that book more than twice and i feel like i don't know anything from it , The way the Book has been writen and the way this book ' Naked Face ' is written its amazing , Its got so much of Thrill into it , so much of exitment and always a Question to be asked ' Whats Next '.

This was my first Sidney Sheldon ( as well as his), and I think it is my favorite. I read the whole book in one day!

Anyone who has read any of Sidney Sheldon's novels will know that he is extraordinary in his writing, and this novel is no exception--as long as you read it with the mindset of, 'THIS IS HIS FIRST NOVEL.' With that understanding you'll love The Naked Face. Without it, it is just average.

This book had me involved in it the entire time. Once I picked it up I didn't want to let go. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery.

This book was fair. It was not a bad book, however, I think Sidney Sheldon has written better. It's worth reading, but I had the ending figured out by the middle of the book.
