I wish that I had read this book during my High School days. If I only had, then I would have used my lunch money to buy more Sidney Sheldon books.
The reason why I did not read the book is because back then, I thought that “Sidney Sheldon” was a female author. Man, I hate female authors when I was a teenager. I thought they were just good for fairy tales and chic novels! But of course, this has already changed. As I grew, I was able to let go of my indignation against female...more

This is one of the weakest and most predictable books written by Sidney Sheldon. I guess it was an okay read, but not very excited and certainly not gripping. It's an ordinary mystery book, nothing special. I w...more
Sheldon crafted a plot that is a little slow to start but once in full flow, develops into a real page turner. We are taken on a rollercoaster ride of suspicion identifying suspect after su...more
However, the out-moded, idiotic beliefs regarding sexuality and the uber-70s dialogue "let's rap," "he was groovy," just makes the whole thing ludicrous. Further, regardle...more

Eventually, with books like Windmills Of The God, he appears to have solved this problem.
A good read for who is new into Suspense & Thrillers.
Overall, I gave this a four, because of the twist and the fact that it was a book I was unable to put down.
It is a good read though ! I recommend it nonetheless !
