Description

'Of all the dystopian novels I have read in recent years, Peter Liney's The Detainee is one the best written, most engaging, heart-tugging and cinematic of all' - Amazon Reviewer

The island means the end of all hope: until 'Big Guy' Clancy discovers a reason to fight back.

When the fog comes down and the drums start to beat, the inhabitants of the island tremble: the punishment satellites - which keep the tyrannical Wastelords at bay - are blind in the darkness, and the islanders become prey.

The inhabitants are the old, the sick, the poor: the detritus of Society, dumped on the island with the rest of Society's waste. There is no point trying to run. There is no point trying to escape. The satellites - the invisible eyes of the law - mete out instant judgement from the sky.

The island is the end of all hope - until 'Big Guy' Clancy finds a blind woman living in a secret underground warren, and discovers a reason to fight . . .
