You want to believe your husband. She wants to destroy him.

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 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.

Reviews, News & Interviews:

A strong choice for bookclubs... an impressive debut with savvy, propulsive courtroom drama. Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Vaughn, a former political correspondent, offers gripping insight into a political sandal... An absorbing and polished mystery. Booklist (Starred Review)

Skillfully interweaving the story of the unfolding scandal, Vaughan gradually reveals just how shockingly high the stakes are. Such is the strength of this sinewy novel from Vaughan that the glossy, tabloid-ready surface proves one of the less interesting facets of the engrossing, twist-filled tale that unspools.
