The Traitors by Tom Becker

This book is about a prison where traitors go called the Dial (so called because it resembles a clock with two walkways in the middle, like hands of a clock, and 12 wings which these hands connect to). Thus if a child betrays someone, e.g. Adam, the main character in the book, kisses his best friend’s girlfriend which gets his best friend expelled from school because he trashed a lab in anger, then they get taken to the Dial to spend an eternity in the prison – although because it is in no-time 100s of years pass there without any time passing here.

Life there is harsh and it is no wonder that Adam doesn’t like it. He wants out, but the only way out is through a warp-hole. But Mr Pitt, the evil guard will stop at nothing to prevent anyone ever leaving. And he has a mole to help him, but who is it? 

The characters are good and the story is full of suspense. A great book with a thrilling outcome.

(I got this book through Amazon Vine. It is listed here.)
