APPLES NEVER FALL
From the outside, the Delaneys appear to be an enviably contented family. Even after all these years, former tennis coaches Joy and Stan are still winning tournaments, and now that they’ve sold the family business they have all the time in the world to learn how to ‘relax’. Their four adult children are busy living their own lives, and while it could be argued they never quite achieved their destinies, no-one ever says that out loud.
But now Joy Delaney has disappeared and her children are re-examining their parents’ marriage and their family history with fresh, frightened eyes. Is her disappearance related to their mysterious house guest from last year? Or were things never as rosy as they seemed in the Delaney household?
Praise for Apples Never Fall
Utterly and completely wonderful. I’ve loved all of Liane’s books but Apples Never Fall is next-level writing: an intelligent, forensic portrait of a family. A thrillingly honest depiction of a long marriage and an unsentimental look at the lives of their four children. Which also happens to be a hugely engaging, sometimes very funny, page-turner

What the reviewers say
“Both hugely popular yet subversive . . . weighty issues writ with humour and a light touch. The hammer is still in the handbag, ready to smash a glass window or two“
“The pleasure here is the skill with which Moriarty inhabits hercharacters, as she carefully builds the suspense.”
