chester's mill is a place like any other. at least, it used to be. until we were cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious dome. invisible, indestructible, inescapable. we don't know where it came from or why it's here, but now that we're all trapped under the dome together, none of our secrets are safe.
on an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in chester's mill, maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a woman's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, and people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families. no one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when-or if-it will go away.
dale barbara, iraq vet with a mysterious past, is trapped in chester's mill and finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens-town newspaper editor julia shumway, physician's assistant angie mcalister, her brother joe. against them stands big jim rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing-even murder-to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. but their main adversary is the dome itself. because time isn't just short. it's running out.
based on the stephen king novel by the same name, "under the dome".
