'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
There is no point trying to run. There is no point trying to escape. The island means the end of all hope, until Clancy finds 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 Clancy finds a blind woman living in a secret underground warren and discovers a reason to fight . . .

WOW, soooo good! This is one of the best books I've read for quite a while, fantastic characters, great plot! I want another book, Mr. Liney and I want it now! ;-) A sequel, new story, non-fiction, I don't care, puh-leeeeze? I'd also love a movie of this but only well done, of course, maybe Brendan Gleeson, Tom Wilkinson, or Liam Neeson playing Clancy? (Just so we don't get any more Cruise/Lestrade/Reacher fiascos, sigh; oh, Hollywood, what's wrong with you?!) Seriously, fellow readers, you've gotta read this!
