Hercule Poirot is reluctant to answer a letter demanding his services by the reclusive and eccentric millionaire Benedict Farley. Farley wants him to diagnose his recurring dream of death, in which he shoots himself at precisely 3:28 p.m. Then, a week after dismissing Poirot, the dream becomes real. Each member of the Farley household that Poirot questions seems to be more puzzled than the one before. Was Benedict Farley’s death a suicide? Or are darker forces at work?

“Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep,…” Mr. Benedict Farley wants M. Poirot’s advice,..but when it doesn’t keep him from dying, that doesn’t sit well with Hercule. Surely you can’t just dream yourself to death, so to speak,.. or can you? Leave it to our favorite little Belgium sleuth to solve this mystery,..don’t you just love that little guy?

The Dream I picked up quite a few of Ms. Christie’s short stories, all for a very low price, I was quite pleased with all of them, they do not have the detailed background as her longer works, but she never fails to please. Plot is very good, and writing excellent.

Emma Schrader says:

The Dream is Not Dreamy I was not particularly impressed with this story. It is really quite predictable and blash….that’s all I can say and especially since it’s been a while since I read it, and can’t even remember anything outstanding about it.
