The Doomsday Conspiracy – Sidney Sheldon | Book Review


The Doomsday Conspiracy is a thriller science fiction novel by Sidney Sheldon.

After being hired on a mission to track down the witnesses to a weather balloon accident in the Swiss Alps, Robert Bellamy, an agent of the ONI, encounters a powerful and murderous alliance which eventually puts his life in danger.

The crashed weather balloon in The Doomsday Conspiracy is in fact, a UFO containing two alien bodies, which was sighted by ten occupants of a tour bus in Switzerland.

“Operation Doomsday” is thus an international conspiracy; a force to eliminate every witness to the ill-fated incident before chaos is unleashed by panicking humans all over the world.

During the course of the mission, Robert’s backstory is revealed in flashbacks, and perhaps the one which stands out the most is of his near-death experience as a naval officer that makes him meet Susan, a nurse.

They eventually get married but his unavailability due to the number of missions he is consistently assigned, coupled with the secrecy of these missions, cause Susan to demand a divorce.

The undertone of science fiction in this novel is the depiction of an earth where aliens exist – where aliens threaten to invade should the destruction of the environment through industrial actions and pollution continue. A subtle message is passed – that of environmental awareness.

The Doomsday Conspiracy is no doubt a page turner, and its simplistic language, suspense and high degree of intelligence will leave you holding your breath till the last page.
