About The Book
Nothing is more important than family . . .
Matt Forrester has followed in his dad’s footsteps, climbing the police ranks to become a DI. But when he receives an urgent call for help, Matt has to rethink his career. His dad has been murdered, and Matt’s not going to let this case go. It doesn’t help that his current boss is sleeping with his ex-wife.
Hermia Forrester didn’t follow her brother into the police force, instead she works in research at the university. But, she’s not going to let that stop her from helping her brother find out what happened to their dad.
But the siblings soon find themselves surrounded by more danger than they ever imagined. Can they both survive this case or will there be more of their family in the morgue?
I really can’t imagine how our main character felt when they told him that his father and his best friend are in the hospital. But this is the tip of the iceberg, because this will make DI Matt Forrester’s life to change forever. And as soon as he sees that he will not be investigating the killing, he will resign from the police and start a new chapter in his life. An easy one? Not at all, but one that he will never regret starting.
I have to say that since I read the plot I was intrigued with the story, not something I am used to reading but couldn’t resist discovering! And let me say that “Fatal Secrets” is quite a book! Twisted, intriguing and with very interesting characters that you can’t stop wondering what will happen to them.
As an avid reader, I have a twisted mind and distrust many of the characters of the book, even Matt’s best friend! But, because you want to know what lies behind all the killings you can’t stop turning pages to know more about the story.
I really hope that we’ll see more cases with Matt Forrester as a PI; he is kind, intelligent and brave. And the case is not an easy one; dangerous and twisted it was quite easy to want more! If you are looking for a twisted case with trusting characters, this should be your next read.

About The Author
Anita Waller was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire in 1946. She married Dave in 1967 and they have three adult children.
With many books to her name, she feels she has finally realised her dream. She writes mainly psychological thrillers, but was commissioned in 2018 to write a cosy mystery series, the Kat and Mouse trilogy. By November 2020 this will have grown to five books, plus a spin-off standalone novel called Epitaph, featuring Doris, one of the characters from the series. This series has now led on to a spin-off series, the Connection Trilogy, with books entitled Blood Red, Code Blue and Mortal Green. All her books, which will number twenty by the time Mortal Green is available, have been published by Bloodhound Books.
In 2021 Waller signed a five book deal with Boldwood Books, and as at December 2022 has two published books with them, One Hot Summer and The Family at No.12, with Fatal Secrets, the first in a new series set in Sheffield, due to launch 8th February 2023.
She is now in her mid-seventies, happily writing most days and would dearly love to plan a novel, but has accepted that isn’t the way of her mind. Every novel starts with a sentence and she waits to see where that sentence will take her, and her characters. If writer’s block intrudes, be sure there will be a death.
In her life away from the computer in the corner of her kitchen, she is a Sheffield Wednesday supporter with blue blood in her veins!
Her genre is murder – necessary murder.
