and the paranormal, twice a week. Chapter One. The cracks in this ceiling are too familiar. They thought of pretending that Marcus had committed a crime, a killing or a vicious assault. They had some nasty ideas.

and the paranormal, twice a week. But any such scheme would require a good quota of witnesses, all of whom must lie, and they didn’t dare trust too many people. For of course, it was their dream that the plot would never be discovered. No, crime was not good. The law is too tough.

She's the Dream Walker - a mysterious apparition who shows up in two different cities at the same time, then disappears, untraceable. Olivia Hudson, an acting teacher at a private Manhattan girls' school, considers this no more than a mean-spirited prank born of desperation and blind ambition.

Raymond has staged the perfect crime, and the perfect frame-up, to destroy the old ma. Inspired by the mob mentality of the postwar McCarthy hearings, Charlotte Armstrong's The Dream Walker (also published as Alibi for Murder) is both an ingeniously clever mystery of double-crosses and triple-twists, and a still-relevant cautionary tale about the irreversible consequences of tabloid journalism and the gullibility of the masses.

Dream of Fair Woman (Keyhole Crime . Charlotte Armstrong

Dream of Fair Woman (Keyhole Crime . Charlotte Armstrong. Charlotte Armstrong's penultimate novel is a good thriller somewhat bogged down by her latter-day propensity to go all wise and Norn like on us. Only a few years earlier she had turned out THE BALLOON MAN, one of her absolute finest books and maybe the best novel, genre of otherwise, to be written about the whole LSD experience.

Masquerading as a supernatural apparition called the Dream Walker, an unscrupulous actress perpetrates a hoax that seems mean-spirited, but harmless enough-until it leads to murder. Format: Mass Market Paperback.

Olivia Hudson is a drama teacher at a Manhattan girls school. She refuses to let her uncle play the role of dupe in a real-life revenge story.
This book is a re-releases that takes place around the cold war. It was a fairly quick read. While some might say it’s a bit outdated, I found that it has become relevant again with everything that has happened since our last election. Overall it wasn’t a bad read and I would probably read more from this author if she something a bit more recent.

This is one of my favorites of Armstrong's books. She is a one-of-a-kind writer. No one is quite like Armstrong. The Dream Walker is about two cousins' mission to protect their uncle from a devious attack on his good name. I don't agree with the reviewers who call it dated and lightweight. I highly recommend.

Olivia Hudson is a drama teacher. Her uncle, John Paul Markcus, is a well-respected man with an unimpeachable reputation. So why does Raymond Pankerman want to take him down?

Pankerman hires a failed playwright to come up with a hoax .. a plot ... that will destroy Marcus' reputation. Doesn't have to be true ... it only needs to be thought of as true. There's also a fledgling actress to perpetuate a supernatural swindle.

Olivia refuses to let anyone denigrate her uncle.

It is Olivia's voice that tells the story. She's actually recording her words and telling the world what really happened. This book was Inspired by the mob mentality of the postwar McCarthy hearings.

Written in the early 60s, it has an outdated feel to it. The premise is a good one. I think it could have been better. It was a short read ...less than 200 pages. It was like trying to swim in mud. Not too interesting and not at all suspenseful.

I have read much better books by this author ... I can only surmise she was having an off day when this one was written.
