Product description

Think twice before you turn traitor.

Adam Wilson has betrayed his best friend. Now he must face the consequences. His sentence is 274 years in The Dial, a prison in a no-time world, where teenage traitors are forced to atone for their crimes. Ruled by a ruthless despot, it is a hellhole where every day is a struggle for survival – and escape. Legend has it that only one person has ever fled the Colditz-like prison. Nobody knows if he made it back to the real world, but he left a ray of hope behind him. Soon Adam is caught up in a deadly plan to run away. But in a world of traitors, you can trust no one.
