Camel Press Announces the Release of Telling Lies: A Mystery about Stolen Art and False Identities
Camel Press releases Telling Lies, by Cathi Stoler, a mystery featuring two dynamic female sleuths whose case sets them against unscrupulous art dealers, foreign spies and greedy businessmen., 4/11/2011 - Camel Press is proud to announce the release of Telling Lies (ISBN: 978-1-60381-843-8, 270 pp., $17.95), by Cathi Stoler, a mystery set in New York and Florence. The novel features two dynamic female sleuths whose case brings them up against unscrupulous art dealers, foreign spies, and greedy businessmen.

“Cathi Stoler establishes herself as an author to watch,” says Camille Noe Pagán, author of The Art of Forgetting.

“Telling Lies is a gripping, suspenseful read packed with memorable characters and deft twists and turns,” says Judith Kelman, Winner of the 2002 Mary Higgins Clark Award for Best Suspense novel.

How many lies does it take to get away with murder? A chance encounter at Florence’s Uffizi Gallery plunges Women Now editor Laurel Imperiole and private investigator Helen McCorkendale into an investigation of missing persons and stolen Nazi art. Could the man Laurel bumped into really have been Jeff Sargasso, an art dealer and friend who perished in the World Trade Center on 9/11? Searching for answers, Laurel and Helen thread their way through a sinister—and possibly deadly—skein of lies.

“My paternal grandparents emigrated from southern Italy,” says author Cathi Stoler. “They never learned to speak English well. Visiting them for Sunday dinner was more of a chore than a joy, as it was very difficult to communicate. When I grew older, I decided that I wanted to see Italy and understand where my family had come from and the culture they’d brought with them. I visited a few times and really fell in love one summer when my husband, daughter and I decided to spend a month in Tuscany. I prepared for the trip by studying Italian for a year before and was happy I did. Being near Florence, we visited its many museums and galleries, including the magnificent Uffizi, where the first scene of my novel takes place.”

Native New Yorker Cathi Stoler started out as a fashion copywriter and later moved into advertising, where she developed award-winning campaigns. Telling Lies, her first full-length work of fiction, was selected as a finalist in the Brighid’s Fire Books Fiction Contest. Two other novels in this series are in the works. A short story, “Out of Luck,” will soon appear in the Sisters in Crime Anthology, Murder New York Style: Fresh Slices. Cathi posts regularly on the blog. She lives with her husband, Paul, and their cat, Merlin, in Manhattan. You can find her online at
