The Lovereading4Kids comment

Omega Place if full of intrigue and adventure and set against a gritty urban landscape. It’s an action-packed teen drama that’s full of clues right down to the final, gripping denouement.
Graham Marks’ novels are a terrific blend of contemporary life and magical realism. Heaven knows where he gets his ideas from but the important thing is that all his novels are fantastic adventures that hold the reader on the edge of the seat from beginning to end.

Synopsis

Omega Place by Graham Marks

When Paul runs away from home he plans to head down to London and a new life, away from his awful stepfather in Newcastle. He runs straight into trouble and into the arms of a radical organisation intent on upsetting the country-wide surveillance system. But are the people as principled as they would like Paul to think?
