About the book

From the author of stunning historical fiction books comes a new story of crime, deceit, and murder, set in the early 1920sĶ

In the summer of 1914 a boy vanishes, never to be seen again.

Now, in 1920, the once esteemed Stilwell family of Darkacre Hall find themselves struggling with the legacy of the First World War. Leonard bears the physical scars, while his brother Maurice has endured more than his mind can take. Maurices wife Ida yearns for the lost days of privilege and pleasure and family friend Victor seems unwilling to move on.

But their lives are thrown into further disarray when the missing boys case is reopened and this time they themselves are under police scrutiny.

As the dead return to haunt the living, old resentments resurface and loyalties are tested, while secrets risk being unearthed that could destroy them all.

Praise for The Good Liars:

The Good Liars is not only a superb book, its a clever bookĶ claustrophobic, addictive and utterly compelling; I absolutely loved it. Highly recommended MW Craven

Exquisitely written, this haunting tale of guilt and grief treads a perfect line between chilling ghost story and gripping mystery Tom Hindle

A modern classicĶ I couldnt put it down Claire Dyer

A compelling, WW1 tale of deceit, lies and the damages of war. Dripping with claustrophobic tension and absolutely unputdownable. I loved it' Rebecca Netley

Anita Frank has created a range of characters alternately agreeable and repellent, and yet all entirely readable, in a blend of history and mystery. A real page-turner Mandy Robotham

A fabulous bookĶ full of twists and turns and heartbreaking revelations with a sprinkling of spookiness on top Laura Shepherd-Robinson

A cleverly structured story, with twist after twistĶ Excellent Ragnar Jonasson

An absolute gulp of a readĶ it grabs hold and doesnt let go F??ona Scarlett

This clever claustrophobic page-turner delivers in spades Carolyn OBrien

About the Author

Anita Frank

A farmer’s daughter from Shropshire, Anita studied English and American History at the University of East Anglia before moving to London to work in media analysis and communications.

She left paid employment to become a stay-at-home mum when she had the first of her three children. Sadly, Anita‘s youngest child developed a rare form of epilepsy in infancy which has left him severely mentally disabled and she is now his full-time-carer, but she has begun snatching what time she can to pursue her lifelong ambition of writing historical fiction.

Anita now lives in Berkshire with her husband, her two lovely girls and her gorgeous boy, a fluffy cat with an attitude, and a bonkers Welsh Springer Spaniel.

Her debut novel, The Lost Ones, was published by HQ in October 2019.
