Anatomy of a Scandal Book

'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, author of The Versions of Us `The best courtroom drama since Apple Tree Yard ... sensational' 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 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 `Anatomy of a Scandal has bestseller written all over it' Veronica Henry, author of The Forever House `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 `Am I allowed to choose my book of the year in May? Anatomy of a Scandal is astoundingly good - a tour de force. I absolutely loved it' Eve Chase, bestselling author of Black Rabbit Hall `Fearless, thought-provoking, unflinching, fascinating, beautifully written' Rosie Walsh, author of Ghosted `Incredibly authentic, highly involving character drama here, in a story that could easily be ripped from the headlines' `The Good Wife meets The Affair - fantastic!' @bleachhouselibraryRead More
