Based on Sarah Vaughan’s best-selling novel, Anatomy of a Scandal is an “insightful and suspenseful series about a sexual consent scandal amongst British privileged elite and the women caught up in its wake.”

The novel centers on Sophie, her husband James, who is a politician accused of a terrible crime, and Kate, the prosecuting attorney in his case. The book is described as part courtroom thriller and part psychological drama, centering on a scandal that “forces Sophie to appraise her marriage and Kate her demons.”
