Cheat and Charmer by Elizabeth Frank
In Cheat and Charmer, Dinah Lasker, a former member of the communist party and married to a Hollywood screenwriter and director, is called before the House Un-American Activities committee. She's told to testify against her sister, a former starlet married to a communist, or face the possibility of jail and the blacklisting of her husband's career. Her relationship with her more beautiful and successful sister has always been a mix of love and loathing, but she gives up her sister to save her own family. Her actions set off a stream of events that will threaten the family security she tried to protect. Pulitzer-prize winner Elizabeth Frank's novel has received mixed reviews with BookPage saying, "Twenty-five years in the making, Frank's richly packed tale can be deemed no less than a magnificent achievement on par with any Hollywood novel ever written. With a master's brush, she paints a mural of human folly that is breathtaking in its scope, yet marvelous in its simplicity."
