"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."
"Superb. Bitingly truthful, intelligent, gripping.
All round class act."
New York Times bestselling author of What She Knew
"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."
"Vaughan, a former political correspondent, offers gripping insight into a political scandal’s hidden machinations and the tension between justice and privilege. An absorbing, polished debut mystery."
"An astonishingly incisive and suspenseful novel about a scandal amongst Britain’s privileged elite and the women caught up in its wake."
"A strong choice for book clubs. Former political correspondent Vaughan makes an impressive debut with this savvy, propulsive courtroom drama."
