Beckoning Dream

(1940)
(Worse Than Murder)
A novel by

 
Connie Walworth, a young widow of extravagant tastes and no income, believed that her husband's family owed her a living. They thought otherwise and just let her beg or sponge. Seeing one of the diaries which Archibald Gedney had kept while dying in an expensive nursing home gave Connie an idea. The diary revealed that Archibald had been troubled by a recurrent, haunting dream. Archibald Gedney, thought Connie, carried a subconscious load of guilt about something. So she started prying into Gedney family affairs and found that they all came into money through the sudden death of their stepmother years back. Could this death have been an unsuspected, diabolical murder for profit?
