When Paul Hendry runs away from home its a spur of the moment decision provoked by disagreements with his parents. Suddenly homeless and alone, Paul decides to head to London, where he just might be able to find a job. But Paul's life changes suddenly when he meets up with two members of a radical group called Omega Place.
Omega Place is devoted to destroying CCTV cameras across the British Isle. They feel that millions of cameras that the government has installed are just one step in a larger Big Brother type plot to spy on the British people. In need of friends and intrigued by Omega Place's ideas Paul joins the group. Paul and his companions journey to London to spread their manifesto and attract public attention.
Needless to say the police are soon begin tracking Omega Place's destructive actions, and Paul and his companions are on the run. Little do they realize, though, but the police are the least of their worries. Someone else wants to stop Omega Place, and he'll stop at nothing to do so.
“Omega Place” is very exciting. Graham Mark's storyline is very believable, and I feel that it shows the dangerous consequences that result when teenagers run away from home. Its obvious that Graham Marks wants readers to think about that the issue of camera spying more closely. However, the story also shows that radical movements such as Omega Place are a dangerous thing to associate with.
“Omega Place” is a well-written and involving tale that has an interesting and thought-provoking message.
