Tell Me Your Dreams Essay, Research Paper The latest novel written by Sidney Sheldon, ?Tell Me Your Dreams?, is about three stunning young women. Their names are Ashley Patterson, Toni Prescott, and Alette Peters. They all live in Cupertino, California and work at Global Computer Graphics, a successful, fast-growing young company with two hundred employees in Silicon Valley. Ashley Patterson is a confused woman, but is smart and beautiful. She?s lonely, timid, and certainly convinced she?s being stalked. Toni Prescott is an insolent, British flirt with a passion for Internet dating and cabarets. Alette Petters is a wannabe artist who chooses quiet, dreamy weekends with handsome painters. Ashley reminds herself of her high school boyfriend, Jim Cleary. He was the most popular

boy in Bedford Area High School. He was on the football team, was handsome and amusing and had a killer smile. He had promised her that they would run away together to Chicago, but Ashley was left at the station watching the train to Chicago leave. Toni had met Jean Claude Parent in an on-line chat room. Jean told her all about Quebec City. Toni was interested and would like to go to Quebec one day. Toni and Jean talked on-line every chance they get. Alette also met a guy, Richard Melton, in the Museum of Modern Art, in San Francisco. They talked about great artist and about Alette growing up in Rome. Alette assured Richard that she?d see him again soon. Ashley receives an invitation to her Ten-Year Class Reunion. She decides to go and reunite with all her classmates except the

person she wanted to see, Jim. A close friend of hers, Florence Schiffer, tells her the horrible news of Jim. The day after the graduation party, Jim?s parents came back and found his body stabbed to death and castrated. She believes her father had killed Jim for her father told Jim to stay away from Ashley.

The plant knew he was fixated on Ashley. Ashley didn?t like him much but she had agreed that she?d go over to his place to discuss about the advice he needed from her. The last thing she?d remember was taking a sip of wine Dennis had given her and she woke up in the Chicago Loop Hotel

When she returns back to Cupertino, Dennis is discovered stabbed to death and castrated. Deputy Sam Blake is the detective for Dennis? murder case. He questions Ashley about Dennis, but she just tells him that she went to his apartment weeks ago for business only. Toni is excited that the company is going to Quebec City for a big computer convention during winter break. She would be able to meet Jean in person. She spends her days in Quebec City with Jean as her tour guide. One day he lets her have a ring in his store and later that night he asked her to go to his place but she had said tomorrow. The next day, early morning, a police officer was

driving by Jean?s house. He noticed that the door had been left open. He went inside and found Jean?s body stabbed and castrated. They knew he was last seen with Toni. But there was no trace of her and there was no information they could find about her except her name, description, and fingerprints. Alette went to meet Richard at the De Young Museum. They had lunch and explored the museum. Richard offered her to come to his apartment and see his painting. But Alette said not yet and she?ll see him next weekend.
