Anatomy of a Scandal Press Reviews

The Good Wife meets The Affair - fantastic! -- bleachhouselibrary

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 answer  -  Laura Barnett, author of The Versions of Us

The best courtroom drama since Apple Tree Yard ... sensational -  Clare Mackintosh

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

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 Yard -  Sunday Mirror

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
