"Mrs McKenzie" is an explicit novel of sex and frustration. Powerful and emotional, it twists and turns around the lives of a frustrated man and his equally frustrated wife, in a world where others use and abuse those who come into contact with them to achieve their own sexual satisfaction in many different ways.
Sarah McKenzie is depressed. She doesn't want sex. She wants to please her husband, but it always seems to be a disaster. No one understands, not even her therapist.
Thomas McKenzie is frustrated, but his real interests lie elsewhere. The demands of a professional dominatrix are, he thinks, well worth paying for. He is prepared to do almost anything for the opportunity to meet her "in the flesh".
Boris and Ivan work for two dominatrixes, but they are more interested in the male clients than in any female, dominatrix or not. Both Angelique, the strong, black Mistress, and Dominique, equally powerful but with a much more ordinary figure and appearance, are seriously wondering whether they can cope with the influx of new clients, and yet they are very selective and demand absolute submission in so very many ways before they will let anyone, male or female, get close.
And then there is Tyrone, the black, muscular bodybuilder at the gym attended by Thomas McKenzie. His desires are complex, and his sex drive seemingly inexhaustible. He may be able to "top" a dominatrix, but his eyes follow Thomas.
Everyone has a secret, whether he or she knows it or not; a secret desire, a secret characteristic, or a secret life. It will all be revealed. Eventually. And explicitly.
