"If you don't know which novel to decide, and want a master story full of twists, you can always pick up a Sidney Sheldon book "
It was yet another Flipkart voucher that I won this time for a blog-post and I decided to redeem it for this book of Sidney Sheldon - Memories of Midnight, which reached me a couple of days before...
Though this is said to be a sequel of "The other side of Midnight" written by Sidney Sheldon himself in 1973, Memories of Midnight has that special factor, which makes it one of his best Novels. If you are an ardent reader, I'm sure you would never wanna keep this book down till you finish the last page.
