Long synopsis : Diane works for the Volf Group. A hugely powerful conglomerate, Volf is negotiating the acquisition of TokyoAnimé, whose revolutionary pornographic 3-D manga is set to annihilate the competition in an extraordinarily lucrative market. Two companies are battling for exclusive rights to Volf’s new images on the Web: Mangatronics and Demonlover. Mangatronics has recruited Diane to torpedo their rival from within. If uncovered, Demonlover’s links with various violent and illegal porn sites would jeopardise any relationship with Volf. Diane discovers that Demonlover too have their spies. This knowledge makes her a threat. She is trapped. At the mercy of Demonlover. Her only chance is to surrender to the cyber-reality of which she has been a part from the beginning.
