Bestselling Thriller Writer Cate Holahan

Tue, April 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

USA Today bestselling author Cate Holahan’s new thriller HER THREE LIVES, follows a family that must discover who the real enemy is after a violent home invasion breaks their trust in one another. The author will discuss her technology-based thriller with local writing teacher Judith Marks-White.

Jade Thompson is an up-and-coming social media influencer, she has a beautiful new home and a successful architect for a fiancé and seems to have it all. But there’s trouble behind the scenes. To her husband Greg’s children, his divorce from their mother and his new life can only mean a big mid-life crisis. To Jade, her husband’s suburban Connecticut upbringing isn’t an easy match with her Caribbean roots.
A brutal home invasion leaves Greg house-bound with a traumatic brain injury and glued to the live feeds from his ubiquitous security cameras. As the police investigate the crime and Greg’s frustration and rage grow, Jade begins to wonder what he may know about their attackers. And whether they are coming back.  As Greg watches Jade’s comings and goings, he becomes convinced that her behavior is suspicious and that she’s hiding a big secret.  The more he sees, the more he wonders whether the break-in was really a random burglary. And whether he’s worth more to Jade if he were dead.
