I've got a lot staked on the final line of the blurb: "And it explains the one lie that binds them all – sex." Otherwise it's feeling a lot like a tawdry gossip at the moment.

From the Blurb:

Between the sheets with Australia's powerful, rich and famous

Since the First Fleet landed, Australian history has been littered with mistresses. Slide between the covers of this book to find a cheaters' list of those women and a star-studded hall of infamy of Australia's rich and powerful men, catching them sneaking into their lover's bed in the dead of night. They are all here: Michael Hutchence, Clive James, Tony Mokbel - the list goes on ...

Wealthy and powerful men have always attracted beautiful mistresses. Kerry Packer, Australia's richest man, was one such notorious philanderer. He only moved home to his wife, Ros, from the flat of his Mistress the day before he died. Politicians are no better: Bob Hawke had a prolonged love affair with his biographer Blanche d'Alpuget before finally casting aside loyal wife Hazel. Former Liberal leader Sir Billy Snedden died on the job in a Sydney motel room with his lover and was found wearing only a condom. Today's politicians certainly aren't squeaky clean either ...

Mistress takes you between the sheets with Australia's billionaires, footballers, celebrities, gangsters and politicians; the women they cheat with, the wives they betray.

And it explains the one lie that binds them all – sex.
