"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)
“Shocking. Compelling. Completely brilliant.” (Eve Chase, bestselling author of BLACK RABBIT HALL)
“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)
“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)
"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)
"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)
"This is an extraordinarily written tale about power, prestige, and the skeletons in the closet. Highly recommended!" ("Dee"va with a Blog)
"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)
"I need to say WOW what an incredible debut novel." (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)
"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)
"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)
"You don't know what the word 'gripping' means until you've read ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL. Wow." (Goodreads, 5 Stars)
"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)
"Fascinating and suspenseful." (Bluestocking Reviews)
