Computer whiz Ashley Patterson is convinced she is being stalked. Coworker Toni Prescott has a penchant for Internet dating and little time for anyone else. And Alette Peters prefers quiet weekends in the arms of a beefcake artist. They know virtually nothing about each other--until the three women are linked by a murder investigation that will lead to one of the most bizarre trials of the century.

Product Description

From Amazon

Meet Ashley Patterson, the brainy, babelicious "computer whiz" and confused heroine of Tell Me Your Dreams. Although she has a cushy job at Global Computer Graphics, a fast-growing start-up in Silicon Valley, her life falls short of fulfilling. She's lonely, shy, and absolutely convinced she's being stalked. What's worse, the only sympathetic ear around is her father, Dr. Patterson, the heartless heart surgeon, who has the charm of an electric eel and the compassion of a tarantula. Given her options, Ashley looks to the heavens for support and offers up an ultimatum to the Almighty: "I'll make a deal with you, God. If it doesn't rain, it means that everything is all right, that I've been imagining everything." Of course, it starts raining buckets just paragraphs later, setting off a car alarm of an omen about our computer cutie's fate.

Enter Toni Prescott and Alette Peters. They both work with Ashley at Global Computer Graphics, but the similarities end there. Toni is a saucy, British vixen with a penchant for Internet dating and discotheques. La bella Italiana Alette, on the other hand, is a wannabe artist who prefers quiet, dreamy weekends with beefcake painters. Reminiscent of junior high school, Toni and Alette do their best to keep Ashley out of their cool clique, but find it difficult when a string of murders irrevocably binds them together. Based on a true story and laden with realistic details--not to mention a whopper of an ending--Tell Me Your Dreams is vintage Sheldon. However, there is one necessary caveat: avoid moviegoer types who insist on telling you the entire plot before you have a chance to see it. You should be doing this anyway, but take extra care with this book. Once the surprise ending is blown, so is the fun in reading it. --Rebekah Warren --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Perennial bestseller Sheldon (The Best Laid Plans) doesn't get under the reader's skin here as he does at his best, even though he weaves together many of his time-tested elements?childhood horror and its consequences; lust and murder as bedfellows; a pretty, hapless heroine; good men in the legal and medical professions trying to undo the wrongs done by others. Despite gory crime scene depictions, the old master, uncharacteristically, has left out the suspense and the layers of feeling. We finger the serial murderer all too quickly, just as we know before we know that Ashley's creepy physician father, Steven, abused her as a child. We never doubt that goodhearted lawyer David Singer will convince hostile judge Tessa Williams that, yes, multiple personality disorder happens, and that, morally and legally, it separates the doer from the deed. Nor is it any surprise that psychiatrist Gilbert Keller, spurred on by personal as well as professional longings, takes Allison apart and puts her back together the right way?or does he? A prefatory sentence says the novel is based on real cases. Maybe so, but one wishes that the authentic details had been told with genuine passion. Literary Guild main selection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Psychological mystery murder! Oct. 21 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
TELL ME YOUR DREAMS starts out with the introduction of three women, Ashley, Toni, and Alette. All three are very different, and only two of them know each other. A few chapters and several murders later, we find out that all three women are the same person. It's a story centered on multiple personality disorder, and I found it fascinating. The controversy behind this disorder is one of the main themes of the book - does it really exist? Are there truly people out there that ARE made up of several distinct personalities in one person?
TELL ME YOUR DREAMS is one of many Sidney Sheldon books I've read over the years. This novel, however, is written in a slightly different format. Although this novel was great, I felt that it could've been treated as two different novels, because there are actually two different "endings" to this story: the conclusion of the trial is one ending, and the afterward that goes into Ashley's psychiatric case is another conclusion. It read like TWO books, with the 2nd part of the book being an "addendum" to the first; a follow up story to what happened to the woman with the split personalities. Although both parts of the book were interesting enough for me, I dont' feel this is one of Sheldon's better novels, in terms of structure.
But as always, he knows how to tell a good story! I could not put this book down and it created an interest to look further into cases of multiple personality disorders. I recommend this book, especially to fans of Sidney Sheldon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Am I the only one who thought this book stunk? Sept. 18 2006
By Annie
I've read some SH books; some are good, some not so good. This one falls at the bottom of the heap. Like many SH novels, the dialogue moved the story along quickly making for a fast read culminating with what is supposed to be (but really isn't) a shocker of an ending. What really put me off was the total dropping of the ball and ultimate acceptance on the issue of child molestation. I kept waiting for the story line to follow through on how the culprit who created the serial killer monster would be apprehended, and instead we get spoon fed a "Aw, he wasn't all that bad; isn't it time to let go of the anger?" attitude. What's up with that? I'm glad I picked this up at a tag sale. It certainly isn't worth the full price of a bookstore purchase.

I won't give away the story because the synopsis given in the editorial review is really all you should know about the book if you really want to enjoy it. No sense in giving away any bits of plot to what IS a Murder Mystery. But the problem was, as good as the book is, it becomes very predictable towards the end. The true highpoint and most memorable part of the book is the very last paragraph on the very last page: it brings this evil "oh-my-damn-god" smile to your face. Unfortunately, if you watch a lot of Psyche-Thrillers(Good or sub-standard, doesn't matter) or even shows like The X-Files; you probably will see the end coming. One more point, the courtroom scenes aren't as great as one might expect. I actually found the scenes from a TV Show like Ally McBeal or The Practice to be more Intelligent. The only reason I finished the book in a single sitting is because half-way through the book, I figured how the book would end..I got a little bit of it right and after she*****SPOILER********
gets into rehab, I knew EXACTLY how she was gonna get out of there. And that's why I LOVED finishing this book: I got a big kick out of knowing that I knew EXACTLY how it would end!!! Read it at your local library. I've never really felt like going through it again.

Sheldon uses his tried and true formula to produce a fast paced tale based on a true story. The plot hinges on the unraveling of a lovely computer graphics analyst working at a large Silicon Valley company --- someone is following her with the intent to kill her; she has no where to turn, her passive personality prevents her from speaking about her fears the her friends and her uncomfortable relationship with her famous heart surgeon father further defines her as someone who reacts rather than interacts. When Ashley suddenly finds herself as the prime suspect in a series of brutal sex-related murders, she discovers that the world she relied on is a fantasy and there are only two close friends that can help her recover her sense of reality.

I'll say no more about the plot -- to say more would ruin the reader's fun. As with other Sheldon novels, the author uses dialogue to move the story along at a quick pace. There are snappy courtroom scenes, revealing patient doctor sessions using hypnosis and other trademark techniques to keep you reading chapter after chapter until the last page. Although fun, don't expect Sheldon at the top of his game, the story, once the secret has been revealed becomes too familiar rather than formulaic. When reading a Sheldon novel, one expects and applauds his formula. I think the subject basis of this story has been over utilized by so many popular writers and recent money-grossing films. Hence, a slight lack of punch. Since the story is advertisized as based on a true story, I would have liked to have seen references to the actual facts listed in the back of the book rather than the lists of institutions and articles written on the subject itself.
