Overview

THE WORD-OF-MOUTH SENSATION THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER A RICHARD & JUDY BOOKCLUB SELECTION NOW A NUMBER ONE NETFLIX SERIES 'Timely and compelling' Shari Lapena 'Impressive' The Times 'Gripping' Observer 'Sensational' Clare Mackintosh A high-profile marriage thrust into the spotlight. 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. Praise for Anatomy of a Scandal: 'Magnificent' Marian Keyes 'Intelligent, subtle and thought-provoking' Louise Candlish 'The definition of a page-turner' Elizabeth Day 'Almost impossible to put down' Louise O'Neill '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 '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' Grazia 'A timely thriller about marriage, but also about power, who wields it, and how that affects who we believe' Stylist 'Well-written, pacy and full of twists and turns' Independent 'New Netflix series lays bare the toxic privilege of those in power... Friend's performance is eerily plausible. His Whitehouse is charismatic and smoothly persuasive, his eloquence barely concealing his arrogance... Equally strong is Miller as Sophie, who is forced for the first time to examine her own cosseted way of life and the principles she has sacrificed to preserve it' Financial Times 'This drama will immediately entire fans of House of Cards, Apple Tree Yard and The Undoing.... Miller is excellent as the elegant, brittle Sophie, who is forced to watch her beautifully organised house fall out of order, the heart of a drama that manages to feel both aesthetically glossy and morally gritty' Sunday Times Culture 'Feels like it could have been ripped from the headlines' Evening Standard 'A cautionary tale for our times' Daily Telegraph **OUT NOW: REPUTATION, THE THRILLING AND TIMELY NEW NOVEL FROM SARAH VAUGHAN**

Reviews

Compelling and timely. --Shari Lapena, internationally bestselling author of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR This exhilarating novel, which switches between Sophie's, Kate's, and James' points of view, will have readers thinking about justice and truth and whether you can ever really, fully know someone. --Real Simple Best Books of 2018 The world has gone mad for this book. I'm so excited. What an outstanding premise. --Rosie Walsh, New York Times bestselling author of GHOSTED Fascinating and suspenseful. --Bluestocking Reviews I need to say WOW what an incredible debut novel. --Goodreads, 5 Stars Incredibly authentic, highly involving character drama here, in a story that could easily be ripped from the headlines. --Goodreads, 5 Stars Sarah Vaughan's ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL is a must read for anyone who has any fascination with sex scandals and the corridors of power. It is sharp, insightful, clever and thoroughly fresh. It takes your breath away. Highly recommended! --Goodreads, 5 Stars This is an extraordinarily written tale about power, prestige, and the skeletons in the closet. Highly recommended! -- Dee va with a Blog This is an outstanding book, wonderfully written and a sensitive portrayal of an all too topical issue. Deserves every one of its five stars and should be huge when it's published. --Goodreads, 5 Stars Through a series of flashbacks and present-day accounts, Sarah Vaughan spins a chilling tale of appearance versus reality, lies versus the truth, and where we all fall in between. --Goodreads, 5 Stars Un-put-down-able. This has the intrigue and suspense of GONE GIRL or GIRL ON THE TRAIN, but is extra chilling because it lacks the extremism that makes those situations pure fiction. The events of this book - the political scandal, the affair, the criminal trial, the personal repercussions of every decision - could happen just as they're laid out, and that makes this book just that much more chilling. --Goodreads, 5 Stars When does consensual sex cross the line into rape? This is the question at the heart of this breathtaking novel . . . Lovely prose with a raw and poignant tone made this a one-sitting read! --Goodreads, 5 Stars You don't know what the word 'gripping' means until you've read ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL. Wow. --Goodreads, 5 Stars A gripping dissection of deceit and desire . . . The definition of a page-turner. --Elizabeth Day, award-winning author of THE PARTY ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL is 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, award-winning author of OUR ENDLESS NUMBERED DAYS and SWIMMING LESSONS ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL is a stunningly compelling read--utterly gripping from the first page, beautifully written and expertly plotted. Vaughan brilliantly captures the cloistered world of Britain's elite, which is packed with suspicion, lies, and terrible betrayals. This book is a must-read for 2018--it's impossible to put down and will stay with you long afterwards. --Sarah J. Harris, author of THE COLOR OF BEE LARKHAM'S MURDER ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL is superb. Bitingly truthful, intelligent, gripping. All round class act. --Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of WHAT SHE KNEW Deftly plotted and superbly well researched, with an eerie relevance to the current debate surrounding the attitudes to and experiences of women in Westminster, Hollywood, and beyond. An intelligent, absorbing page-turner that avoids all knee-jerk assumptions and easy answers. --Laura Barnett, internationally bestselling author of THE VERSIONS OF US I cared about both women--couldn't put it down . . . really, really, really, really good. --Marian Keyes, Internationally bestselling author of THE BREAK I enjoyed ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL immensely - a very elegant dissection of a very messy affair. Loved it. --Louise Candlish, author of THE SWIMMING POOL I was hooked right from the start. So beautifully written, clever and compelling. I was gripped right up to the final page. --Claire Douglas, bestselling author of The Sisters and Local Girl Missing Sarah Vaughan is sensational. --Clare Mackintosh, internationally bestselling author of I LET YOU GO Sarah Vaughan writes about the heartbreaking consequences of sexual abuse and the abuse of power with real compassion as she takes us on a journey from modern day Westminster to 1990s Oxford University and back again. --Karin Salvaloggio, critically-acclaimed author of SILENT RAIN Shocking. Compelling. Completely brilliant. --Eve Chase, bestselling author of BLACK RABBIT HALL This engrossing, masterfully crafted thriller is a story of money, abuse of power, revenge, and the pursuit of justice. This story feels like it has been ripped from the headlines. --Goodreads, 5 Stars Sarah Vaughan's Anatomy of a Scandal is just that -- a gradual unearthing of long-held secrets and betrayals, followed by a front-row seat for the lives that unravel as a result. Suspenseful and shocking, centered around an important moral issue that makes it especially intense, Anatomy of a Scandal is a nuanced, highly addictive read that resonates long after the final word. --Kimberly Belle, New York Times bestselling author of THE MARRIAGE LIE
