Jordan is an intelligence and covert operations agent. She is a beautiful and sensual woman in a world of macho men. Carrying with her the experience of an army commander, she becomes a sophisticated spy. She enrolls in obscure missions behind enemy lines and recruits the dancing skills that accompany her since childhood in order to infiltrate an exclusive men's club in a hostile country.

After her discharge from the unit, she continues with missions of espionage and surveillance as a private investigator, "a shadow woman".

˃˃˃ The Shadow People
Between the more recognized "shadow government" to "shadow war" there is a world of concealed shadow people. The shadow people secretly gather intelligence through observation and surveillance in the covert intelligence world.

In the spiritual world, the shadow people are God's followers who walk in his shadow.

In the psychological aspect, these people accompany the individual in life's crises and upheavals.

All of these together are embodied in book "The Lady of the Shadows" and its heroine who went through all the stages, from an intelligence agent through a private investigator, a student and a teacher in the mystical world until she became a PhD in psychology and an Adlerian lecturer. She chose to help people while she herself remained in the shadows.

After reading this book, you would not walk through shadow zones.

˃˃˃ A wild and liberating femininity
Betrayals, dancing in foreign territory, pain and growth, are all leading the reader in a suspenseful and exciting experience that contains insights about love, hate and revenge.

This is a book about a wild and liberating femininity and a sensual and passionate woman in a world dominant by males. Reality and imagination are fused together inseparably and concoct a sweeping and moving story.

I love a good spy book and it has been a long time since I have read one as good as this! Jordan gets discharged from her agent position and gets called by the government. She becomes a Shadow spy – she is basically undetectable and gathers her information by any means possible including using her femininty to get what she wants. 

The way the author has set the story is just brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed ever minute of this and it had me gripped from the start. Jordan is such a strong character and in a male dominated world the author has done a wonderful job at portraying her as being just as good if not better at the job than a man. I have to admit I loved it a little bit more as the lead was female, I can’t think of another spy book that I have personally read that had a female lead….

This book will have to hooked and just when you think you have figured out the twists and turn pull the rug from under you. 

I highly recommend this if you love the spy, espionage genre and even if that isn’t your usual cup of tea then certainly give it a read, you will not be disappointed.
