Sidney Sheldon's After the Darkness is a 2010 novel by Tilly Bagshawe. Bagshawe began writing Sidney Sheldon works after the latter's death in 2007. After writing Mistress of the Game, Tilly Bagshawe once again recaptured the late Sidney Sheldon’s way of thriller writing in After the Darkness. The novel echoes the Bernie Madoff scandal in America.[1]

The author contends that she “[wrote] and research[ed] as Sidney did. I pretty much read all his work, dreaming it, and thought it to get it right. I tried very consciously to be true to him and sound like his voice.” [2]

Plot summary[edit]
