Stephanie ZvirinFerguson's latest mystery seems very like a familiar television movie, complete with a twisted psychiatrist villain. Lacey, who's seeing a therapist about nightmares, dreams she has stabbed Celeste, a friend with whom she's had a falling out. When Celeste is actually found dead, Lacey tells the police her dream particulars, and she's arrested for the crime. Characters are stock, but the author throws in a couple of red herrings--Lacey's boyfriend, for one; the pacing is brisk enough to make mystery readers happy, and the violence is less exploitive than what's now seen on prime-time television. While the knife-wielding masked fellow in the corner of the dust jacket will likely lure a few readers, the dull colors and generally unattractive composition of the jacket illustration will chase off an equal number.
