The Insect Farm Summary

The Insect Farm by Stuart Prebble

Brothers Jonathan and Roger Maguire each have an obsession. For Jonathan, it is his beautiful and talented girlfriend Harriet. For Roger, it is the elaborate universe he has constructed in a shed in their parents' garden, populated by millions of tiny insects. But Roger lives in an impenetrable world of his own and, after the mysterious death of their parents, Jonathan is forced to give up his studies to take care of him. This obligation forces Jonathan to live apart from Harriet - further fuelling his already jealous nature. Their lives are abruptly shattered by a sudden and violent death, and Jonathan is drawn into a cat-and-mouse game with the police. Does Roger know more than he is letting on? A cleverly plotted mystery with a shock ending, The Insect Farm - Stuart Prebble's awaited new novel - will linger long in the mind of its readers.

The Insect Farm Reviews

Cleverly plotted and compulsively readable. * Mail on Sunday *
Chilling and suspenseful, rich and human. -- Lee Child
Cleverly plotted and compulsively readable. * Mail on Sunday *
Only rarely do a gripping psychological crime story and a literary writer's insight and masterful style coincide. But The Insect Farm has that distinction. You'll read this book fast, so compelling is the story, then-I guarantee-go back and read it again to savor the author's gift for rich, lyrical writing. A tour de force. -- Jeffery Deaver, author of Solitude Creek
The opening few pages of The Insect Farm so grabbed me that I couldn't stop reading. This is one of the most original, surprising, and even shocking suspense thrillers that I've come across in a long time. -- David Morrell, bestselling author of Inspector of the Dead and Murder as a Fine Art
The passion and mounting tension, as the plot developed, felt at times almost unbearable, as the author's descriptions of obsession, jealousy and suspicion were gut-wrenchingly convincing. * Newbooks magazine *
Complex and interesting. -- Lizzie Hayes * Promoting Crime Fiction *
A wonderfully creepy-crawly suspense novel. * Crime Time *
The story is beautiful, with a plot that is as intricate and iridescent as a moth wing. A truly unpredictable ending tops off a skilfully crafted book with poetic prose and refreshingly deep characters. Prebble is truly an artist, and words are his clay. * The News Hub *
An interesting and well-crafted book. * Crime Review *
