A novel about family, love and other battlefields.
After Frank drops down dead in Heathrow Arrivals on Christmas Eve, his estranged daughter Jem is called in to identify the body. When Jem travels back to Frank's house in France - a house she hasn't been in since she was a child - she realises that Frank had a son too.
Frank has died of a congenital heart defect, a defect he may have passed on to his daughter - or on to his son. Jem must warn her brother, but in finding herself a family she risks ripping another apart.
Shrewd, witty and poignant, The Frank Business is a vivid tale of love and other battlefields.
