A Silent Understanding by Lorenzo Marks
Touted as the next supermodel and engaged to a wealthy Wall Street banker, Trudy Beach has the world at her feet. But while sunbathing with her friends beside the pool at her fiance’s country cottage, Trudy is blissfully unaware that her life is about to be turned upside down. Secretly watching her is Hank, the abnormally well-endowed and emotionally unstable maintenance man.
When Trudy’s ex-boyfriend begs her to help him pay off Vincent, a vicious loan shark, a sequence of events is triggered that threatens both Trudy’s future marriage and her career. Blackmailed with lurid photographs, Trudy is coerced into becoming Vincent’s unpaid flunky—as well as Hank’s private bondage model.
Trudy tries to keep her career and relationship intact, but the emotional trauma takes its toll, and both begin to suffer. Fearing that she will lose everything she has accomplished, Trudy begins to take increasing risks in an attempt to rebuild her life—only to find herself being unwillingly pulled deeper into Vincent’s sordid underworld of crime and prostitution.
She is eventually caught up in a highly publicized FBI bust and the glamorous lifestyle she had been so tenuously protecting comes tumbling down. Trudy is spared jail time, but now that her marriage and career are in tatters, Trudy discovers that her reluctant journey into the sordid world of sexual bondage is far from over.
