The Coach's Wife

(2004)
A novel by

 
The Cinderella Coyotes of State University are in the Final Four, poised to win the NCAA National Championship in basketball - the culmination of March Madness.

For Marla Conners, she's proud of her husband Neal, and his achievement of coaching a collegiate team to the pinnacle of his career and the ultimate victory for his team. Yet Marla's idyllic life is about to be viciously attacked and torn apart by a different madness - her husband's reputation ruined, a university disgraced, and she finds herself on trial accused of first-degree murder.

THE COACH'S WIFE is rife with spine-tingling suspense, conspiracy, deceit, and murder, sizzling and seductive passion, right down to the last second buzzer-beating heroics. This is also a candid and vivid behind-the-scenes portrait of Division One college basketball, university politics, money and corruption, and all the lives that are blessed and ruined by it all. Be prepared to finish it in one sitting - you won't be able to put it down.

"Outstanding!"

"A slam dunk! NCAA basketball game is the thrilling opener of The Coach's Wife but the behind the scenes jockeying for power is even more of a trip. Coach Neal Connors leads his underdog team to a coveted national championship, but his glorious moment is soon shattered.
