Looking for a book which will give you goosebumps? Here are some books which will keep you holding till the end!
TELL ME YOUR DREAMS BY SIDNEY SHELDON:
Someone was following her. She had read about stalkers, but they belonged in a different, faraway world. She had no idea who it could be, who would want to harm her. She was trying desperately hard not to panic, but lately her sleep had been filled with nightmares, and she had awakened each morning with a feeling of impending doom.
Three beautiful young women are suspected of committing a series of brutal murders. The police make an arrest that leads to one of the most bizarre murder trials of the century. This story is based on actual events and reading this gave me chills. The character, Ashley Patterson is struggling a lot in this book and that made the readers to connect with her.
THE SKY IS FALLING BY SIDNEY SHELDON:
Washington TV anchorwoman Dana Evans (from Best Laid Plans) suspects the accidents befalling the rich Winthrop family, killing all five members, were murders. Like Chicken Little and the sky falling, she chases clues across the world to unravel an international conspiracy. The inheritance goes to charity, so money is not the motive.
The book is written in such a way that the reader itself is going on the mission with the main character. The book kept me holding till the end and I absolutely loved it!
THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES BY AGATHA CHRISTIE:
Emily Inglethorp, the rich mistress of Styles Court manor, is found dead. Poisoned. Hercule Poirot is called upon to investigate the death by Captain Hastings, who is a guest at the manor. Though a retired detective, Poirot steps in to unravel the truth. Who could have killed her? And why? The husband who would inherit the wealth or her stepson? There are others who raise suspicion too. What do the clues add up to? A broken coffee cup, splash of candle grease and the name of the husband on Emily’s dying lips. There is one way to find out and the master sleuth Poirot the Belgian detective who features in thirty-nine Agatha Christie mysteries is sure to find out.
This book is such a short read but they are so many events happening in the story. The plot twist is awesome in the story and it reads like a work of art. Such a quick read!
AND THEN THERE WERE NONE BY AGATHA CHRISTIE:
Europe teeters on the brink of war. Ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realize they may be harbouring a murderer among their number.
The 10 strangers include a reckless playboy, a troubled Harley Street doctor, a formidable judge, an uncouth detective, an unscrupulous mercenary, a God-fearing spinster, two restless servants, a highly decorated general and an anxious secretary. One by one they are picked off. Who will survive? And who is the killer? Copies of an ominous nursery rhyme hang in each room, the murders mimicking the awful fates of its ‘Ten Little Soldier Boys’.
MASTER OF THE GAME BY SIDNEY SHELDON:
Kate Blackwell is one of the richest and most powerful women in the world. She is an enigma, a woman surrounded by a thousand unanswered questions. Her father was a diamond prospector who struck it rich beyond his wildest dreams. Her mother was the daughter of a crooked Afrikaner merchant. Her conception was itself an act of hate-filled vengeance.
At the extravagant celebrations of her ninetieth birthday, there are toasts from a Supreme Court Judge and a telegram from the White House. And for Kate there are ghosts, ghosts of absent friends and of enemies. Ghosts from a life of blackmail and murder. I absolutely loved this book! Every chapter never ends with a cliff-hanger, it always ended with a twist. The story is of greed, lust, ambition, manipulation, revenge and big business that threads its way through four generations of a family. One of the best reads in criminal fiction!
