The Farm by Tom Rob Smith


Deliciously creepy and unexpected, The Farm begins with a phone call. Daniel, living in London, is called by his seemingly distraught father with the news that his mother has been committed to a mental hospital. That his mother is accusing people, his father included, of terrible acts of violence and depravity, comes as a shock to Daniel, who believes that his parents have been living a quiet life on a farm in Sweden. His mother’s story, however, is a compelling one, and he finds his loyalties divided as he searches for the truth. Tom Rob Smith, author of the bestselling Child 44, is skilled at crafting a plot that seems it could go in several directions – and then moves in a completely different one. The Farm will keep you guessing until the very end.

If you refuse to believe me, I will no longer consider you my son…Daniel believed that his parents were enjoying a peaceful retirement on a remote farm in Sweden, the country of his mother’s birth. But with a single phone call, everything changes. Your mother…she’s not well, his father tells him. She’s been imagining things – terrible, terrible things. In fact, she has been committed to a mental hospital. Before Daniel can board a plane to Sweden, his mother calls: Everything that man has told you is a lie. I’m not mad…I need the police…Meet me at Heathrow. Daniel is immediately caught between his parents – whom to believe, whom to trust? He becomes his mother’s unwilling judge and jury. Presented with a horrific crime, a conspiracy that implicates his own father, Daniel must examine the evidence and decide for himself: who is telling the truth? And he has secrets of his own that for too long he has kept hidden…
