 Londoner Georgina Powers (User Deadly) finds herself in 9´ Weeks situation--sexually obsessed with a computer expert who degrades and abuses her to the point of needing hospitalization. Furthermore, the man's wife shows Georgina a digitalized porn game that features Georgina as the star, and a snuff film with her husband in it. While trying to track down the history of the doctored tapes and run it as a story for her magazine, Technology Week, Georgina is reunited with former love Warren--a brilliant, thieving computer hacker who's become partners with her ex-husband Eddie in a Las Vegas enterprise that--surprise--has bankrolled the Pornoland games. There'll be one near-death from racial violence, one driven-to-suicide in a kinky interactive computer setup, and enough bruises around Georgina's throat to make a hangman wince before the supremely unlucky-with-men reporter sorts out the porn business--and herself. Edgy, nasty, and fascinating in its depiction of sexual enthrallment. The talented Danks has carved out a niche for herself as the chronicler of computer amorality and created--in Eddie, Warren, and Georgina--nuanced performers to carry forth her cautionary tales.
