His singularly stand alone novel that had some resemblance of being a proper book. Afterward he found his grove, rather his formula and pretty much stick to it till the end. Though I guess his books are endless quick fun reads. But very by the numbers.

After rereading The Naked Face, I have to say this isn't Sidney at his best. In my opinion, his worst novel was A Stranger In The Mirror followed closely by Doomsday Conspiracy. Naked Face feels more like amateur hour for Sidney's quality. Tha ...more
1) seeing as this is his first novel, its obvious that his writing style has improved a lot since then
2) i can already point out whos the bad guy here. it wasnt even a surprise at all. maybe bcs im too used to his writing style
Sheldon's first novel. My ninth read. The book was well-written. It is simple and easy-to-read. I must admit that I found it quite offensive reading the words "he was a homosexual" followerd by "he was cured". We should all know by now that homosexuality is not a disease, hence, it's not something one can cure, so it was quite a bit disappointing to read from the words of my favorite novelist. But I just took a mental note of it and kept reading, making sure that part wouldn't affect my judg ...more

This book is, by every bit, intriguing. It will make you think who is the possible killer up to the last minute which really tested my patience. No hints whatsoever and then surprise! Mystery dropped like a bomb. Underwhel ...more

murdered, perhaps because he was mistaken
for Stevens. Not long after, Carol Roberts,
Stevens' secretary, is also found murdered.
The police, partly due to anger with Stevens
testimony in a previous case, are quick to
treat Stevens as the prime suspect. To prove
his innocence and track down t ...more

I can't deny the fact that I enjoyed this book immensely ! Nor the fact that I didn't see it coming on the identity of the culprit in the end!
I really liked this aithor's writing style it was smooth and an easy read !
But I really disliked the outdated cringeworthy terms used here and the last quarter of the novel felt deflated and rushed.
I can see how he was quite a talented author and that this is his debut novel...Colour me impressed !
My interest is piqued to check out his other works!
