Cover blurb:
In the far future, the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack find a world on which fiction has been outlawed. A world where it's a crime to tell stories, a crime to lie, a crime to hope, and a crime to dream.

But now somebody is challenging the status quo. A pirate TV station urges people to fight back. And the Doctor wants to help — until he sees how easily dreams can turn into nightmares.

With one of his companions stalked by shadows and the other committed to an asylum, the Doctor is forced to admit that fiction can be dangerous after all. Though perhaps it is not as deadly as the truth...

Featuring the Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston, together with Rose and Captain Jack as played by Billie Piper and John Barrowman in the hit series from BBC Television.

Note:  Titled Les Voleurs de Rêves. After the (presumably successful) range of 11th Doctor novels translated into French earlier in 2012, this is the first 9th Doctor novel to receive the same treatment.

Cover blurb:
« Peu importe ce dont je rêve, peu importe ce que j'écris : c'est toujours un mensonge. »

Dans un futur lointain, le Docteur, Rose et le capitaine Jack arrivent au beau milieu d'un monde où la fiction est prohibée. Même mentir et rêver sont désormais des crimes punis par la loi. Mais une chaîne de télévision clandestine appelle la population à l'insurrection... Le Docteur souhaite évidemment apporter son soutien à ce soulèvement, jusqu'au moment où, confronté au personnel d'un asile psychiatrique et à un dément hanté par des monstres imaginaires, il devra bien admettre que tout rêve peut s'avérer dangereux. Mais pas autant que la vérité elle-même...

Une nouvelle aventure fascinante du Docteur, de Rose et du capitaine Jack, interprétés par Christopher Eccleston, Billie Piper et John Barrowman dans la spectaculaire série télévisée de la BBC.
