display_description #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter's first contemporary suspense novel.
First published in 1988, False Pretenses is the explosive story of how one woman survives the destruction of her perfect life—and the intentions of three mysterious men...
A famous concert pianist married to a wealthy international business tycoon, Elizabeth Carleton is the envy of all until the night her husban is stabbed in the chest with an ice pick and everything falls apart.
Accused of murder, Elizabeth has little hope of being exonerated 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.
Free and completely bewildered, Elizabeth must now cope with the financial empire her husband left behind and his family, who want to destroy her. Then three men suddenly appear in her life. Can she trust any of them? Or is one of them a murderer?
