Part courtroom drama; part portrait of a marriage; part exploration of the extent to which our demons still haunt us, Anatomy of a Scandal is a disarming and provocative psychological thriller. At the heart of the story Sarah Vaughan skillfully probes the dilemmas that women face when their lives are touched by crime, or other forms of darkness.
This is the novel everyone will be talking about!
‘A compelling and cautionary story about how we can never truly know someone else; how even after twelve years of marriage, a wife might not know everything about her husband. Brilliant, shocking, and gripping, once I started, I couldn’t stop reading’—Claire Fuller, bestselling author of Our Endless Numbered Days
‘That rare book that combines great writing, spot-on characterisation and a compulsive, page-turning narrative. I read it in one breathless day. Set against a fascinating backdrop of the Houses of Parliament, the Old Bailey and Oxford University, think House of Cards meets The Secret History. Meticulously researched, this is an outstanding read’—Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle
‘A whip-smart, grown-up thriller with a hugely relevant moral question at its core’—Tammy Cohen, author of When She Was Bad
‘Sarah Vaughan has achieved that rare alchemy; a strong plot combined with complex characters and brilliant writing. Anatomy of a Scandal is thrilling. I came away feeling that I had read something extraordinarily good’—Emma Curtis, author of One Little Mistake
