Jim had no idea what a Digitally Optimised and Modulated Epidermis was or that there was one hanging over his head.
D.O.M.E is a secret project run by The Private Patrol Group. Its aim is to intercept all the information generated in the city. The main character, Jim, works as a night shift dispatch officer for the P.P.G. and is implicated in a plot to sabotage his employers project. To avoid jail, he must find a scientist who has been kidnapped by the saboteurs. It leads him into a world that runs parallel to his cosseted one and forces him to examine what drives him.
On one level it is a straightforward story about transformation but on another it explores the process of writing. The characters he meets are the frameworks of literary influences and the story unveils itself as a chronicle of the creative progression of the writer.
