The recently married Alix Martin is obsessed with a recurring dream of her new husband’s murder. Each time she can see the murderer clearly, and it’s the mild-mannered man she had previously been engaged to, taking his revenge. But, what’s worse is that at the end of the dream she thanks the murderer. Perplexed, Alix tries to calm herself by spending time in the garden of her picturesque cottage. But her gardener confuses her further by wishing her well on her trip to London—a trip which Alix knows nothing about. Now Alix is scared: is the gardener imagining things, or is she?


  • Cool suspense filled book!

    By HorrorThrillz
    This book is filled with all sorts of twist and a quite bizarre, but very awesome ending.
  • Great plot but rip off

    By Bookreviewer101
    The short story was advertised as having 46 pages and only had 26 otherwise it is a good book with a very abrupt ending that is un-Christie like.
