Inhaltsangabe: Elaine, ambitious and hardworking, plays by the rules at the office so well that she's on the brink of an impressive promotion. But in the cyberspace world she visits every night as "Francesca," she plays by a different set of rules. There, her cool mastery gives way to abject obedience, as the mysterious "Inez" seduces her into demeaning--and irresistible--sexual adventures. When a careless mistake destroys the barrier between virtual reality and her corporate life--and suggests a disturbing connection between her nightly degradation and her professional success--Elaine becomes obsessed with finding her real-life paramour. Her speculations about Inez's true identity quickly run wild, and soon all her once-innocent encounters with friends and colleagues are charged with sexual overtones.

In a darkly comic, highly erotic tale for our time, Martha Baer captures the allure of anonymous cyber-sex and the elusiveness of gender definitions and social identity. As Francesca will appeal to all those who have ever been seduced by the power of words--and by their own imaginations.

Rezension: Playing out fantasies that won't effect our daily realities is a potent lure for people who inhabit computer chat rooms. In this mesmerizing novel, Martha Baer talks about that phenomenon and adds the potent element of obsession with an online but otherwise unknown lover. Francesca is the online persona of Elaine, a promising young professional who exhibits much savvy while making her way up the corporate ladder. By night, though, as Francesca, she becomes the willing submissive lover of Inez. When Elaine slips and reveals her true identity, Inez disappears, leaving Elaine searching frantically for Inez--with unexpected consequences.
