In 1979, Jeremy Thorpe, the rising star of the Liberal Party, stood trial for conspiracy to murder. It was the first time that a leading British politician had stood trial on a murder charge. It was the first time that a murder plot had been hatched in the House of Commons. And it was the first time that a prominent public figure had been exposed as a philandering homosexual. With all the pace and drama of a thriller, 'A Very English Scandal' is an extraordinary story of hypocrisy, deceit and betrayal at the heart of the British establishment.

An authentic page-turner...hard to put down. So well researched and ruthlessly written with accuracy and truthfulness at it's core. Highly recommended.

I couldn't put it down, a powerful accompaniment to the wonderful series with Hugh Grant as Jeremy Thorpe and Golden Globe winner Ben Whishaw as the "Very English Scandal", confirming the historical accuracy, even in its detail, of the film
