The second in Peter Liney's Detainee series. Clancy thought escape from the island would be enough. He was wrong.
Having escaped the island - a wasteland that housed those no longer able to contribute to society - ageing 'Big Guy' Clancy thought his fighting days were done. But the mainland is not the haven he anticipated.
With the punishment satellites that kept the island - and the city - under control gone, hell has been unleashed. A mysterious organisation has begun to decimate the population; those it doesn't kill outright are herded into the streets and then set free to run for the rich and powerful to hunt.
Clancy is about to discover that his work is far from over.
And the fires of hell don't burn much hotter than this.
