The Abuse of Power

The Abuse of Power A true story of sex and scandal at the heart of London's elite Anthony Daly

'Explosive' Belfast Telegraph

Chilling. Candid. Controversial.

This is the voice of one man from within a dark scandal that nestled in the heart of London's Soho in the 1970s.

Travelling to the big city to escape The Troubles in his native Northern Ireland, Anthony Daly accepted a job in Foyles Bookshop and began a new life in England. However, his naivety saw him quickly fall foul of predators, looking for young men to blackmail and sexually exploit.

After years of hiding the secret of his abuse at the hands of some of the most influential men in the country, Anthony's trauma became harder to contain, as he witnessed revelations of historic abuse coming to light on TV and in newspapers.

Then, finally, his lost voice ripped through the safe family life he had built over 40 years.

With parallels to Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, this is stylishly written and politically explosive. It is the haunting true story of a young man's decent into a hell designed to satisfy the powerful. A world that destroyed the lives of everyone involved.
