At first glance, this book seems like an average run of the mill courtroom drama. What surprised me is that it's not. Unlike other stories of this nature Anatomy of a Scandal spends a lot of time on the family and fully develops each of the characters while always leaving room for secrets in all of it. For some people, the pacing might seem a bit off, but for me the pacing was okay. The story sometimes dragged but with court cases I feel that the story natural moves slower than your average suspense. One thing that disappointed me was the lack of lawyer skills among the plot. For a book about a courtroom investigation, the lawyers are lackluster at times and seem a bit unbelievable. Overall it was an okay read and I'd recommend to anyone looking for a courtroom drama.
