Tremendous in its scope, this novel presents an astounding panorama of human life—from the productive genius who becomes a worthless playboy—to the great steel industrialist who does not know that he is working for his own destruction—to the philosopher who becomes a pirate—to the composer who gives up his career on the night of his triumph—to the woman who runs a transcontinental railroad—to the lowest track worker in her Terminal tunnels.
You must be prepared, when you read this novel, to check every premise at the root of your convictions. This is a mystery story, not about the murder of a man’s body, but about the murder—and rebirth—of man’s spirit. It is a philosophical revolution, told in the form of an action thriller of violent events, a ruthlessly brilliant plot structure and an irresistible suspense. Do you say this is impossible? Well, that is the first of your premises to check.
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.
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 Daley.
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 for good.
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 they need.
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
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.
I stole every nickel and blew it on fine threads, luxurious lodgings, fantastic foxes and other sensual goodies. I partied in every capital in Europe and basked on all the world's most famous beaches'. Frank W Abagnale, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams and Ringo Monjo, was one of the most daring con men, forgers, imposters and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and co-piloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as a member of hospital management, practised law without a licence, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks all before he was twenty-one. Known by the police of twenty-six foreign countries and all fifty states as 'The Skywayman', Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the run - until the law caught up with him. Now recognised as the nation's leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale is a charming rogue whose hilarious, stranger-than-fiction international escapades and ingenious escapes - including one from an aeroplane - make CATCH ME IF YOU CAN an irresistable tale of deceit.
Pretty Little Liars
Driven by celebrity worship, vanity, and the desire to look and dress like the rich and famous, the Bling Ring made headlines in 2009 for using readily available sources-like Google maps, Facebook and TMZ, to track the comings and goings of their targets. Seven teens were arrested for the crimes, and instantly became tabloid fodder. The world asked-how did the American obsession with celebrity get so out of hand? And why did a band of ostensibly privileged LA teens take such a risk?
Vanity Fair reporter Nancy Jo Sales found the answer: they did it because they could. And because it was just that easy.
Author of the acclaimed Vanity Fair story on the Bling Ring "The Suspect Wore Louboutins," Sales gained unprecedented access to the Hollywood thieves, and in the process uncovered a dark world of teenage arrogance, greed, obsession, and delusion. Now, for the first time in a full book length work, Sales details the Bling Ring crimes up close and in depth, and reveals the key players' stories in a shocking look at the seedy world of the real young Hollywood.
