Customer Review

on 21 August 2013
It's always an unbridled joy to saunter into Toppings bookshop in Bath and browse through their splendid selection of new books on display. By chance, I happened to pop in as they were laying Peter Liney's The Detainee out on their central tables on its day of publication, and I have not stopped recommending the book ever since. A strangely unsettling, dystopian novel that depicts a grim, dehumanising landscape whilst weaving in a human dimension that emotionally engages throughout. This is testament to Liney's imaginative powers of description and his three dimensional characterisations. The Detainee manages to construct both an absorbing cinematic sweep and a real sense of human intimacy. And with some aplomb!
