"Impressively dark"―Financial Times
"A solid continuation of The Detainee. Peter Liney doesn't let his story falter at any given moment"―The Book Plank
"A compelling story about adaptability, compassion and courage"―Bibliosanctum
"If you want to read a novel with a dystopian look at ageism, an examination of an extreme example of a police state, and a dose of The Lord of the Flies blended into a unique vision of the future, this may be exactly what you've been looking for. Liney's characters and world manage to get under the reader's skin even when the exact details are a little off-putting."―Fanboy Comics, on The Detainee

When Clancy, Lena and their friends finally return to the mainland, hoping for freedom and a peaceful life, little do they know about the threats they will have to face there. From the beginning on I was absolutely captured by the already familiar characters and the continuing story.
Peter Liney artistically paints a dystopian future where individual monitoring via the Internet plays a major role, and not a pleasant one. Despite many horrifying, some quite graphic, scenes, it was this theme that personally scared me the most, suddenly seeming so possible in the real future, with commercial and security databases interlacing, leaving hardly any chance to escape.
In contrast to this grim situation there are the delicately portrayed emotions of the main characters, especially their hopes. Those moments offered me a welcome break to catch my breath again during the often rather fast-paced story.
