Overview

Journalist Ishtar Benten is promoted to the most secret department of the News Agency that monopolizes information. Soon afterwards, her erotic-coffee colleague disappears mysteriously, and she starts a very dangerous investigation to find him.

What is the sexiest of all possible worlds? How would you act when Love conflicts with Truth? The Woman Who Sparked the Greatest Sex Scandal of All Time is a dystopian adventure like those of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Ray Bradbury, Anthony Burgess, and Philip K Dick. At the same time, it is a captivating and emotionally charged novel, and it offers readers high doses of passion, suspense and mystery. It has been given "The Kirkus Star," a distinction that is "Awarded to Books of Exceptional Merit," and has been listed among the "Best Indie Books of 2013" by Kirkus Reviews.

"This delicately intricate work provides a full dance card of themes: sex, romance, mystery and a grim peek into a devastated future... Touches of wry humor reinforce an already sturdy novel... A virtuosic, erotic sci-fi debut." -Kirkus Reviews

"The wonderful and powerful imagination of the author brings all the characters and the situations they find themselves in very real and believable... All in all a wonderful story and one that I will read again in the future." -The Scribes Library

"[This book] explores and humanises the universality of love, justice, faith and consequentiality." -Self Publishing Magazine


"The writing is beautiful, erotic, poetic, intense, imaginative, intelligent - and gripping enough that I could barely put it down... Ultimately, this is one of the most delightful books I've ever read." -Francis James Franklin (Alina Meridon) Literary Blog


"A novel that can teach us how to rebel against the colonisation of the mind." -Bert Olivier, Thought Leader


"Compelling stuff, getting better as the book goes on, and a brilliant way to end the book too." -YeahYeahNoh, Amazon.uk top 1000 reviewer


"Yes, there are a few explicit sex scenes, but they are meant to complement the plot and give the character depth. They carry the reader into Ishtar's imagination as a sex writer, as well as into the personalities of the people she encounters... In my view, the book is a metaphor for how an oppressed freedom of speech looks like when people get too comfortable in their chairs to fight back. I recommend this book for both the content that makes you think and the author's talent with words that make you read a sentence twice just for the beauty of it." -Readers' Favorite

"This book is absolutely amazing. It took me a couple of chapters to get into it, but once I did I could not put it down, I was simply absorbed by it and it was in my head even when I was not reading it... Yes, there is lots of sex in it. And sometimes it is more bizarre than anything, but this is because sex in this book isn't simply sex... We see the battle of love/sex vs. hate/violence, the manipulation of society by the media, the control by politics, the question of whether what we hear is reality and if the lies we are told benefit us... I also would like to mention author's brilliant narrating style. The words used bring the depth, the atmosphere, the juiciness, the feelings, the excitement. It is absolutely beautiful..." -Ira Therebel on Goodreads


The novel is recommended for ages 16+.



The book contains unconventional descriptions of explicit sex. As the Author discusses in the blog denouncecensorship.blogspot.com, such content does not deserve any kind of censorship or adult filter.
