Shadows of Power by Jennifer Bacia
Shadows of Power is a story of driving passions woven around the topical and compelling issues of prostitution, organised crime and media power.

Raised in a working-class inner city suburb of Sydney in the 1960s, Lenore Hamlyn is rescued from a sexually abusive father by her Irish landlady, Nan Morgan.

When Nan falls ill Lenore discovers that their comfortable lifestyle is in fact based on Nan’s earnings as owner of Sydney’s most prosperous and notorious brothel. She resolves then to devote her life to achieving more freedom for women.

With the backing of four years’ experience in Europe and the inheritance of Nan’s fortune, Lenore changes her name to Anthea James and makes her mark in Sydney as a designer of beautiful jewellery. Her next step is to establish herself as Australia’s most powerful, highly-paid media personality.

But Anthea’s ultimate aim is to make a career in politics for herself, and in the process of obtaining government action on the criminal importation of Asian girls for an Australian prostitution racket, Anthea receives sinister threats from some of Sydney’s leading public figures.

Her biggest threat, however, is the emergence from her past of the only man she has ever loved but who now has the power to destroy her. . .
