In the small, picturesque town of Pagford, a member of the Parish Council, Barry Fairbrother dies prematurely. Though the town has a peaceful exterior look, inside the town is a battleground. Everybody hates everybody else, and with the vacancy in the council, politics injects a war in the town.

Unveiling of deep secrets of powerful people affects everybody. So the question recurs, does the town recognize itself?

The Casual Vacancy is J.K. Rowling’s first adult book after her fame with fantasy books, and received great appreciation.
