I need a book cover for a cyberpunk detective novel titled ‘Dome City Blues.’ The story centers around David Stalin, a tough private detective in his early thirties, living in a dystopian future version of Los Angeles.
The book is set fifty years in the future, when Los Angeles is covered by a series of domes that protect the citizens from a damaged ozone layer, global warming, and a noxious atmosphere. This is a world where cybernetically-enhanced gangs cruise dark alleys, the streets are crammed with animated billboards and 3D holographic advertising.
The following text from the back cover should give you some idea of the plot…
LOS ANGELES: 2063
David Stalin was one of the best detectives in the business, running head-to-head with data-jackers, organ thieves, and the tech-enhanced gangs who ruled the shadowy streets of Los Angeles. He could do no wrong, until what seemed like an easy case got out of control, and left his wife dead among the abandoned ruins of old LA.
After four years of self-imposed retirement, David suddenly finds himself back on the job, struggling to unravel a crime far worse than murder. This time, he’s not the hunter. As he’s about to discover, the past isn’t finished with him yet.
