False Pretensesby Catherine Coulter
Synopses & Reviews
New York Times Bestselling author. Her first contemporary suspense-now repackaged!
Beautifully repackaged for her ever-growing legion of fans, this is the explosive story of how one woman must survive the destruction of her perfect life-and the intentions of three mysterious men.
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. We've given it a stylishly menacing new cover, and I'm happy to say that the novel didn't need any rewriting, just some updating.
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?
