Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

'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
Think last year’s drama Liar with a dash of Apple Tree Yard
A timely thriller about marriage, but also about power, who wields it, and how that affects who we believe’
Expertly plotted courtroom drama … Gripping and beautifully written’
Marks a shift in genre for Vaughan and promises to explore the nature of power and privilege among the country’s political elite’
Sarah Vaughan drip feeds revelations while exploring the power and privilege of political elite’
‘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
“The courtroom yields high drama, but Vaughan also dives deep into the characters’ backstories—especially the entitled lives of powerful men—creating a nuanced story line perfectly in tune with our #metoo times.” People
'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] savvy, propulsive courtroom drama.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“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)
