What a book !!!!!!! From fantasy land to thriller world

I just can't believe i was stuck with Harry Potter . I don't have much reading habits but I gave in to the hype and purchased the Harry Potter books. But thanks to my friend i purchased sidney sheldon's TELL ME YOUR DREAMS . This book took me out of the fantasy land of Harry Potter and intoduced me to fiction.

The central character of the book is Ashley. She is a workaholic. She suffers from a condition known as "Multiple Personality Disorder" or MPD (presently known as Dissociative Identity Disorder).
Characters involved are

Ashley Patterson
Alette Peters
Toni Prescott(Dominant)

Ashley is an introvert and a workaholic. Toni is very outgoing and dynamic. She can sing and dance. Alette is a very innocent and shy girl. She is an excellent painter.

Toni is angry with Ashley as they are completely contrasting characters. She always criticizes her in front of Alette. Alette keeps calming Toni down every time. Toni hates Ashley. Allete is neutral. But Toni and Alette are friends.

Ashley's fears that somebody is following her are confirmed when somebody breaks into her house and writes on her looking glass with a lipstick, "You will die." Many men are mudered. One common thing all the murders have is the victims had sex before the murder with the woman who murdered them. Who's behind the serial murders?

This book delves into the much debated topic of multiple personality disorder.
The courtroom scene and treatment is superb.
