A Novel

Narrated by Julie Teal, Luke Thompson, Esther Wane & Sarah Feathers / 10 hours 55 minutes
Bookseller Recommendation

Anatomy of a Scandal

“I don’t read a ton of thrillers, but this one was all over British publishing social media and it caught my eye, and I’m so glad it did! I knew as soon as I read it back in January that it would be my favourite book of the year, and that’s held true. It’s about an MP who is accused of sexually assaulting one of his staff, and it’s told from the point of view of both his wife and the barrister who is prosecuting him. It’s so well written, so well observed, so timely and it’s a scathing indictment of the ruling classes – which is always cathartic.”

Instant International Bestseller

“A nuanced story line perfectly in tune with our #metoo times.” —People, Book of the Week

“Vaughan offers 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…Sinewy…engrossing, twist-filled.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Some people’s secrets are darker than others.

Sophie Whitehouse has a lovely home, two adorable children, and a handsome, successful husband. In other words, she has the “perfect” life. But everything changes the night her husband James comes home and confesses an indiscretion. Suddenly, her neat, ordered world is turned upside down. Did she ever really know the man she married?

And, as it turns out, James’s revelation is just the tip of the iceberg. He stands accused of a terrible crime. But, the truth is even more shocking than anyone ever could have thought. Is James the guilty perpetrator or an innocent victim of a toxic agenda?

In this riveting story of love, revenge, and deception, no one’s motives are pure, but some people’s secrets are much darker than others.
