Here is Hodder & Stoughton's description of Under the Dome:

Celebrated storyteller Stephen King returns to his roots in this tour de force featuring more than 100 characters – some heroic, some diabolical – and a supernatural element as chilling as nay he’s ever conjured.

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town in 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, people running errands in the neighbouring town are divided from their families. Dale Barbara, Iraq veteran, teams up with a few intrepid citizens against the town’s corrupt politician. But time, under the dome, is running out …

UNDER THE DOME is King at his epic best and will capture a brand new readership as well as thrilling his existing fans.
