Dear Listener: Impulse is an exciting mystery suspense that first came out in 1990. I’ve done a bit of rewriting and updated it. Now, I want you to get ready. Rafaella Holland, a Pulitzer Prize winner, now a journalist for the Boston Tribune, discovers from her comatose mother’s journals that her “real” father is Dominick Giovanni, a wealthy, very powerful arms dealer who lives and runs his operations from his own private island compound in the Caribbean. She wants revenge for what he did to her mother. She wants to gather enough proof to send him to prison for the rest of his miserable life. Marcus Devlin manages the resort on Giovanni’s Island, private playground for the wealthy and powerful. He’s very good at what he does, but Rafaella wonders if he’s really what he seems. Then someone tries to kill Dominick Giovanni. Who? Then someone tries to kill Rafaella and Marcus. Why? As Rafaella and Marcus grow closer, events threaten to spin out of control when their small world on Giovanni’s Island starts to implode. Do try Impulse if you missed it when it first came out. Let me know if you figure out who is trying to kill Giovanni before you reach the end. E-mail me at ReadMoi@gmail.com or write me at P.O. Box 17, Mill Valley, CA 94942. Catherine Coulter
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.
I read this book years ago and have read it 5 different times now. Its one of my favorite books ever and one of the best CC has done outside of her FBI series. This book had everything I love in a story, romance, suspense, action, and alot more.
