The shiners think they've eliminated every conceivable threat. Then the Risk Management Commission banishes Letitia Wilson and Alexander Romanov from city society. Letitia and Alexander build new lives in the wilderness outside the env-domes. They also try to piece together the story behind the env-domes, and the history of the villagers who live in the wilderness. The villagers think the city-folk are dangerous monsters, who they call "shiners". City-folk think the villagers are animals, which they call "hominids". Letitia tries to bridge the cultural gap between city and village societies. But Alexander exploits the intercultural gulf as he plans his revenge. When Letitia uncovers his true plans, she faces a terrible choice... Set in a future in which city-folk have forgotten why their ancestors enclosed the cities inside environmental domes, The Truth about the Shiners satirises bureaucracy and shreds political correctness. A powerful, gritty story about war, sex, and cultural misunderstandings.
