Product description

Review

The courtroom yields high drama, but Vaughan also dives deep into the characters' backstories-especially the entitled lives of powerful men-creating a nuanced story line perfectly in tune with our #metoo times.

-- "People"

[A] savvy, propulsive courtroom drama.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

[A] gripping insight into a political scandal's hidden machinations and the tension between justice and privilege...Absorbing, polished.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Skillfully interweaving the story of the unfolding scandal, Vaughan gradually reveals just how shockingly high the stakes are.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Product Description

'Timely and compelling' Shari Lapena, Books of the Year, Sunday Times Crime Club
'People are calling this the new Apple Tree Yard, but I’d beg to differ – fast, pacy and with enough twists and turns to keep you gripped right to the end, I’d argue its infinitely better' The Pool
‘Well-written, pacy and full of twists and turns’  Independent
'Gripping. A savage indictment of class, privilege and toxic masculinity in Britain ... Almost impossible to put down' Louise O’Neill
'Deftly plotted ... with an eerie relevance to the current debate surrounding the attitudes to and experiences of women in Westminster, Hollywood and beyond' Laura Barnett
‘The best courtroom drama since Apple Tree Yardsensational’ Clare Mackintosh

A high-profile marriage thrust into the spotlight. A wife, determined to keep her family safe, must face a prosecutor who believes justice has been a long time coming. A scandal that will rock Westminster. And the women caught at the heart of it.

Anatomy of a Scandal centres on a high-profile marriage that begins to unravel when the husband is accused of a terrible crime. Sophie is sure her husband, James, is innocent and desperately hopes to protect her precious family from the lies which might ruin them. Kate is the barrister who will prosecute the case – she is equally certain that James is guilty and determined he will pay for his crimes.

'A compulsive read with completely layered characters. Superb' John Boyne
'I love it when a book lives up the hype – and this one does. It is quite shockingly good' Sun
'This page-turning novel reveals the precarious nature of existence as the seemingly perfect lives of Sophie and her husband James unravel… The author anatomises in gripping fashion the inner workings of the corridors of power, as well as the hidden recesses of the mind and heart' Anita Sethi, The Observer
'This clever plot raises many issues of the moment” - Marcel Berlins, The Times
'Once the trial of MP James Whitehouse starts, you could not have prised the book from hands for love or money' Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express
'A plot that is so deftly constructed, you’ll feel as if you’re on a roller coaster wearing a blindfold. It’s an absolute masterpiece – prepare to be very impressed' heat
 'A lot of reviews claim that a novel has them ‘hooked from the start’ – but with this story, it’s painfully true … The thorny issue of consent is tackled sensitively, while exploring the consequences of the case on both women and the past demons it exposes' Grazia
'One of the best books you’ll read this year' Closer
‘Sarah Vaughan drip feeds revelations while exploring the power and privilege of political elite’ Good Housekeeping
‘Think last year’s drama Liar with a dash of Apple Tree YardSunday Mirror: Notebook
