"An exciting romantic thriller"

It's midnight in San Francisco and Father Michael Joseph is in his church to hear confession from a man who killed twice and intends to go on killing. Father Michael plans to inform the police because he feels the killer is not truly repentant, but only confessing to brag about his murders. When the culprit realizes what the priest intends to do, he kills Father Michael, not realizing there was a witness in the church who saw what happened.

FBI special Agent Dane Carver flies to San Francisco to find out what the police know about the killing of his identical twin. While there he meets the witness Nick Jones, a woman posing as a homeless person because she fears somebody is trying to kill her. Dane sticks to Nick like she is the magnet and he is steel. The case takes a bizarre twist. The killer has patterned the murders out of the episodes of a new television program so they reason he must be somebody connected to the show, a wild bunch of characters capable of anything.

Readers of Catherine Coulter's suspense thrillers will be pleased to know that FBI agents Savitch and Sherlock play a key role in the ELEVENTH HOUR. The story line is vintage Coulter: exciting, enthralling and totally mesmerizing. The burgeoning relationship between Dan and Nick is cleverly interwoven into the fast paced and utterly absorbing plot. This novel is heading straight for the New York Times bestseller list.

When Father Michael Joseph is viciously murdered in his San Francisco church, his identical twin brother, FBI agent Dane Carver, along with husband-and-wife team, Savich and Sherlock, is determined to find the monster responsible. There is a witness, a homeless woman whose identity is a mystery. When "Nick" Jones comes forward, Dane finds himself in the unlikely role of bodyguard; she just might be next on the killer's list.

But which killer's list?

It seems Nick Jones is running from her own nightmare. In a cat-and-mouse chase that runs from the streets of San Francisco to the television studios of Los Angeles, where a brand-new show is found to have a curious connection to the murders, Dane Carver, Savich and Sherlock are in a race against time to find the madman responsible—but it's already the eleventh hour.
