Synopsis

Dear Listener: False Pretenses was not only my first contemporary suspense novel, but was also my first hardcover, published in October 1988. It came out the following May in paperback. Meet Elizabeth Carleton, a fascinating woman who is not only a famous concert pianist, but is also married to a wealthy international business tycoon, Timothy Carleton. She is the envy of all until her perfect life falls apart literally in a heartbeat: Timothy Carleton is stabbed in the chest with an ice pick and Elizabeth is accused of his murder. Things rapidly go from bad to worse until a surprise witness appears to give her an airtight alibi. The jury finds her not guilty. The only thing is: She’s never met the man who testified on her behalf. What does he want? There is also her late husband’s family, who are out to destroy her. On top of everything else, Elizabeth is expected to take over the financial empire her husband left behind. Then three men suddenly appear in her life. Can she trust any of them? Or is one of them a murderer? I hope this story will have you turning each dark corner with Elizabeth to see who’s there to do her in. Let me know what you think. Catherine Coulter

About the Author

If you could begin you full time job at 7:30 a.m. and be completed for the day by 11:00, wouldn't that be a great job? American author, Catherine Coulter has her dream job with just that schedule. She begins every morning at 6:30 a.m. checking and answering her emails, and begins writing at 7:30 a.m. After writing her quota for the day, she finishes at 11:00! Coulter usually plans to write one suspense novel and one historical romance novel each year.

Coulter began her career as a speech writer for an executive on Wall Street while her husband was a medical student. She did a lot of reading herself to fill her time as he studied or was on duty. During one particular reading episode, she got so aggravated by the lack of good writing in the book she was reading, that she threw it across the room. As she did this, she yelled, I could do so much better than that! Her husband said, then go ahead, prove it! Thus began a career that has led her to writing over fifty books, with 42 consecutive novels on the New York Times best seller list. Among them: The Cove, The Maze, The Target, The Edge, Riptide, Knockout, Hemlock Bay, Blindside, and many others in her suspense thriller series.

Coulter currently resides in Marin County, California just across the Golden Gate Bridge, with her husband and their three cats. They enjoy travel, skiing, and she is still a very avid reader.
