Tell me Your dreams was written by Sidney Sheldon and published in 1998. The book is preceded by the 'Best Laid Plans' and succeeded by 'The Sky Is Falling'. Sydney Sheldon didn't start writing till he was 50 but already had success in the film business which probably helped him in his ability to write addictive love and suspense stories.
The central character is a called Ashley Patterson and she is and introverted workaholic. Her co-workers are Toni Prescott, outgoing singer and dancer and Alette as shy artist, all seem very different characters on the surface but all have issues with their mothers who had made them feel worthless.
Ashley fears that somebody is following her. There are signs that someone has broken into her house. She gets police protection but the next day, the police officer assigned to her is found dead in her apartment. Two other murders have taken place with and identical pattern. All the men murdered had been castrated and had been having sex before being murdered. Evidence points to the same woman being involved in all three cases. The bombshell is when we discover that the Ashley, Toni and Alette are actually the same person because Ashley suffers from a multiple personality disorder. The second part of the story deals with the trial. Her father gets his attorney friend to represent Ashley and he convinces the court that Ashley was not in control and technically innocent and her other personality Toni actually committed the murder. Ashley is committed to the asylum for therapy and during that time some dark secrets that explain her condition are brought out into the open.
Brilliant shocking story! My sister gave me this book 10 years ago and it's just been gathering dust on my shelf. I decided to bring it on holiday with me last year and just could not put it down. It's a nice quick read and full of twist with a shocking ending. A powerful crime thriller with a difference. This book keeps you intrigued throughout and will have you guessing right till the end with its unpredicable story line.
