Staff Reviews

    The Farm is a spooky, suspenseful book set between rural Sweden and London concerning the spoken and unspoken in familial dramas.
    Dad says Mom is crazy and violent.
    Mom says Dad is corrupt and plotting against her.
    Mom is pledging to disown you if you side with Dad.
    Dad is on a plane heading toward you, risking all the trust you've gained with Mom thus far.
    The Farm deals with unreliable narrators and newly unreliable parents. The protagonist, Daniel, must decide to either believe that his father is involved in a sex trafficking conspiracy in Sweden or believe that his mother is suffering from severe paranoid delusions. Unraveling this secret takes more than blind faith in any of the stories being told, and Daniel must then go to Sweden, meet his Mother's enemies and seek out the mystery of her allies and her own tormented past.

— Chelsea S


From Tom Rob Smith-author of the phenomenal Child 44 trilogy-comes one of the most anticipated novels of 2014...

The Farm

Until the moment he receives a frantic call from his father, Daniel believed his parents were headed into a peaceful, well-deserved retirement. They had sold their home and business in London and bid farewell to England, setting off to begin life anew on a remote, bucolic farm in rural Sweden.

But with that phone call, everything changes. Your mother's not well, his father tells him. She's been imagining things-terrible, terrible things. She has had a psychotic breakdown and been committed to a mental hospital.

Daniel prepares to rush to Sweden on the first available flight. Before he can board the plane, his father contacts him with even more frightening news: his mother has discharged herself from hospital, and he doesn't know where she is.

Then his mother calls:

I'm sure your father has spoken to you. Everything that man has told you is a lie. I'm not mad. I don't need a doctor. I need the police. I'm about to board a flight to London. Meet me at Heathrow.

Caught between his parents and unsure of who to believe or trust, Daniel becomes his mother's unwilling judge and jury as she tells him an urgent tale of secrets, lies, a horrible crime, and a conspiracy that implicates his own father.
