The Skin Map

Kit is just an ordinary person, nothing unique. He lives alone, has a boring job, and dates a girl he doesn't really think he will marry. But all of this changes in one afternoon. 

Had he but known that before the day was over he would discover the hidden dimensions of the universe, Kit might have been better prepared. At least, he would have brought an umbrella. 

Kit leaves home to visit his girlfriend. She has taken the day off work to do some much needed shopping with him. But he never arrives. Instead he is literally blown off course and into another dimension. Kit meets his great-grandfather along a busy wharf; the same grandfather who reportedly left his wife years before. Cosimo Livingstone, whom Kit was named after, has been traveling along parallel dimensions along ley lines for years. But he isn't getting any younger and he needs someone to finish what he has started. Cosimo has been in search of the pieces of a map. He has part of it, but he needs it all. He asks Kit to join him in the search. The map is a most unusual map. It is tattooed onto skin. It seems the man who mapped out all the ley lines didn't want to lose his map and didn't want it falling into the wrong hands, so he had it carefully tattooed onto his body. 

I really enjoyed this book, more than I thought I would. It is a gripping story that makes you keep coming back for more.
