Okay, this is the difficult bit. Can't say too much. But...this is taken in part from the One-Sheet I used to pitch the Demi-Monde.

Civilisation has been so, so lucky…lucky because α-Singularities like Stalin and Hitler – hi-performance psychotics - are so rare that they never seem to manifest themselves more than two at a time. Lucky because civilisation struggles to cope even with just two of them. But what if they came at us gang-handed…?

Cue the US Military’s Asymmetric Warfare Training Program…the Demi-Monde. The Demi-Monde: the most sophisticated and powerful Asymmetrical Warfare cyber-milieu ever produced. The US Military’s neoFights have never had it this good…this bad. But what makes the Demi-Monde unique isn’t that it’s operated by the world’s first quantum computer, ABBA; isn’t that it conjures up the most ferocious, unrelenting and challenging Asymmetric Warfare Environment envisionable; isn’t even that it is the first simulation product to incorporate ParaDigm’s Totally Realistic User Envelopment - TRUE - technology to ensure full and all-pervasive Player/Simulation meshing…

No…what makes The Demi-Monde unique is that amongst its thirty million avatars are seeded a group of PreLived Singularities. Singularities…from whose ranks have risen the tyrants and despots who have shaped the Real World, who have built empires and whose malignant personalities have caused the hurt and anguish that has besmirched history. Singularities…Heydrich, Shaka Zulu, Empress Wu, Godfrey de Boullion, Selim the Grim, Lavrentii Beria…

And it's into this world that the daughter of the US President, Norma Williams, has become trapped.and a young African-American, Ella Thomas, is persuaded to enter the Demi-Monde to lead her out. But as Ella finds out all is not as it seems in the Demi-Monde and Ella just hopes the cyber-walls they have built around the Demi-Monde are strong enough to contain the amount of evil it contains.

But she might be wrong...
