Ezicash by Ian Thompsonhas a detailed book description on its Amazon Kindle store page which is well worth reading to get a flavour of the book.
I was drawn to the book by the eye-catching cover,the unusual title and the European Union setting of the book given the current national obsession with all things EU. I read the book with my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
Ezicash is set in 2060 in a post-EU dystopiawhere safety and health have become all-consuming for the citizens of DOSH-1-TERMINUS-UK (Department of Safety and Health).
DOSH1 residents are part of EZICASH (Eurozone Investigative Coordinating All Safety and Health) and they live a carefully controlled, micro-managed lifestyle in a super-size, all-encompassing dome.
But one day there is a problemwhich can only be fixed by an outsider - someone who doesn't live in the dome.
It becomes apparent early on in the novel that there is an alternative to the sanitised dystopia of dome life. This is explored through the narrative of Philip Lud, an old fashioned plumber whose lifestyle, and that of his friends, is the very opposite of DOSH1.
