Product description

Review

An impressively dark, dystopian piece with much to say about capitalism's tendency to treat human beings as commodities, disposable when no longer useful (Financial Times)

Fascinating ... interested to see what happens next' (Thinking About Books)

Peter Liney is a description genius ... The Detainee is definitely a book that should be read by all (Fresh Fiction)

I'm already anxious to read the next book in the series . . .You wouldn't want to be on this island, but you sure will enjoy getting a glimpse from the comfort of your couch (GeekDad)

a very slick dystopian story that impressed me in the way Liney describes the world he created . . . I knew The Detainee was going to be a special read but until I read the last page, I had no idea just how good it really was (Speculative Book Review)

a heartbreaking dystopian story about survival, cruelty and slowly regaining a little bit of hope (Draumr Kopa)

The Detainee had me gripped (And Then I Read A Book)

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)

Book Description

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