Dominic’s Mum is super-clever. She’s invented Vims, a Virtual Interactive Mobile System, which can be programmed to do anything – defuse bombs, detect landmines, operate complex equipment in hazardous conditions – it’s genius. But when a saboteur re-programmes Vims, its first important demonstrations go horribly wrong. Only then does Dominic realise that Vims is lethal, and it’s coming for him…
A gripping story in which Dominic turns detective, to discover who has betrayed his Mum. He rapidly realises that unlike computers, people can’t be programmed. They sometimes do the wrong things for the right reasons, with life-changing consequences. Dominic also uncovers some painful home truths about friendship, family, loyalty and trust.
