Not many books can make me totally speechless, but Sidney Sheldon's Angel of the Dark managed that quite effectively. The story starts fast and never once takes a break. There are so many twists and turns, it is sometimes difficult to keep up. Everything did come full circle. The characters are easy to adore, and it is easy to understand why the characters feel as they do. It takes readers around the globe, on a whirlwind adventure filled with both heart wrenching love and with mind numbing terror. This is not a novel for the faint of heart. Hang on for the ride of your life. And watch the end, it’s a real doozy.
