An investigation is under way to discover who knew what and Carol knows she has sailed a little too close to the wind this time. First came the messages on her screen, then the book in her post box which she is ordered to read; The Pleasure of the Whip. And then the final ultimatum, report for a weekend of total submission or have everything spilled to the authorities and the police. She agrees and finds herself in a penthouse apartment with a masked man. After a weekend of total submission, Carol knows the heat of desire pain can cause and knows too that her life will never be the same again.
