The New York Times bestseller is now expanded with a special note from the author, 16 pages of color photos and a shocking new epilogue that everyone on the show is talking about -- literally.
The novel that had Oakdale in an uproar is now even more sizzling! Katie Peretti, who acknowledged that she is the author of OAKDALE CONFIDENTIAL, has vowed to fight back against the Oakdale citizens who are vilifying her—and she means business. She has added to this new edition of her novel an all-new epilogue, featuring her current husband, her ex-husband -- and his new girlfriend, which reveals a startling secret that will change the lives of several of Oakdale's most prominent citizens.
OAKDALE CONFIDENTIAL: Secrets Revealed by Katie Peretti as told to Alina Adams (Pocket Books; November 14, 2006; $19.95) features characters from the show in an original adventure. In an innovative coordination between print and broadcast media, OAKDALE CONFIDENTIAL: Secrets Revealed is being incorporated into the “As The World Turns” story line.
Three of the show’s most popular characters—Katie Peretti, Carly Snyder, and Maddie Coleman—attempt to solve the mystery of a local philanthropist’s murder in order to protect the men they love.
OAKDALE CONFIDENTIAL: Secrets Revealed’s suspenseful story line begins when chauffeur Henry Coleman opens his limo’s door and Oakdale Memorial Hospital’s gala event’s guest of honor, Gregory Marron, falls out unconscious. People fear the philanthropist has suffered a massive heart attack. But when a doctor pronounces the man dead, three women in the crowd, each for her own reasons, suspect murder.
Katie Peretti knows her boyfriend Mike hates Gregory because, fifteen years ago, Mike was convicted on slim, circumstantial evidence of stealing one of Gregory's cars, and Gregory insisted Mike receive the stiffest sentence possible. Katie fears that her involvement with Gregory while she helped prominent Oakdale citizen Nancy Hughes plan the gala celebration set off Mike's jealousy and re-ignited his long-simmering hostility toward Gregory.
At the same time, sixteen-year-old Maddie Coleman fears that her older brother, Henry, could be involved in the murder. It seems that Henry was driving Gregory Marron's limo, and might very well be responsible for the man's death. She knows that Henry is having money problems and that he's $30,000 in debt to his employer. Why did Henry tell her that all their troubles would be taken care of tonight? Is Henry hiding anything?
But if that weren't enough, Carly, wife of police detective Jack Snyder, fears that her husband committed the crime. She has good reason to believe that Jack could be involved because two days before the gala, Gregory Marron told Jack the ugly truth. He actually revealed to Jack that years ago Carly had been Gregory's mistress. Has Jack gone and done the unthinkable?
When the police officially declare Gregory Marron’s death a homicide, Katie, Maddie, and Carly launch their own investigations in order to protect the men they love. But their search for answers raises even more questions and places them in jeopardy.
Does the town of Oakdale harbor a murderer who is willing to kill again in order to protect his “perfect crime?” Find out when you pick up your copy of OAKDALE CONFIDENTIAL: Secrets Revealed.
